"The Map is Not the Territory" Parallel Paths looks at relationships and commonalities in Palestinian, Native American, and Irish experiences of invasion, occupation, and colonization through the eyes of contemporary artists. More

This campaign will support the tour and maintenance of this vibrant, unique, innovative, and even revolutionary project, which strives to give a voice to the voiceless.

Thirty-nine renowned contemporary artists ─ most of them Palestinian, Native American, and Irish ─ confront history and investigate personal and political dialogue about invasion, occupation, and colonization. 

"The Map is Not the Territory" is a phrase coined by philosopher/scientist Alfred Korzybski, who proposed that humans have access to desires and sets of beliefs which we confuse with direct knowledge of reality. The territory of original inhabitants ─ reality ─ is not necessarily synonymous with maps and boundaries ─ desire ─ drawn by colonizers.

This exhibit reflects the multiple truths in Korzybski's dictum that "the map is not the territory."
