Lize Mogel is an interdisciplinary artist who works with the interstices between art and cultural geography. She creates and disseminates counter-cartography-- maps and mappings that produce new understandings of social and political issues. Her work connects the real history and collective imaginary about specific places to larger narratives of global economies. She has mapped public parks in Los Angeles; future territorial disputes in the Arctic; and wastewater economies in New York City.
Lize is co-editor of the book/map collection "An Atlas of Radical Cartography" and co-curator of a related traveling exhibition which toured internationally. She has worked with groups including the Center for Land Use Interpretation and the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest. Exhibitions include the Sharjah (U.A.E.), Gwangju (South Korea) and Pittsburgh Biennials, "Greater New York" at PS1, and "Experimental Geography". She has lectured about her work at numerous venues nationally and internationally including the Whitney Museum, the New Museum (NYC), and the Royal Danish Art Academy (Copenhagen). She has received grants from the Jerome Foundation, the Graham Foundation, the LEF Foundation, and the Danish Arts Council.publicgreen.com,
