The World Was Never Flat features work by MacAulay Brown/ Monica Burckhardt, John Forse, Nico Gardner, Lydia Smith, Maria-Elisa Heg, and FOTO 390. It examines the use of geography and mapping within historical, political, and social contexts, highlighting the complexity of the landscape that surrounds us. While the map is usually perceived in a two dimensional plane, these artists challenge that notion by revealing that the world is never flat.

Apart from opening receptions, Matchbox is open on Wednesday from 12PM to 5PM, Thursday from 5PM to 7PM, and by appointment. Please email: mtchbxgallery@gmail.com
