As part of OMCA's new exhibition, You Are Here: California Stories on the Map, consider the ways in which invisible patterns and powers are made real on maps in this special program. How do maps help tell under-told stories? How does collecting data enable us to understand the histories of oppression and imbalance of power? What do maps help reveal for future generations?

Join the conversation with Liam O’Donoghue, host and producer of acclaimed podcast East Bay Yesterday, Jenny Odell, multi-disciplinary artist and author of How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy, Alexis Madrigal, journalist and staff writer at The Atlantic, and Dr. Brandi Thompson Summers, assistant professor of Geography and Global Metropolitan Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. The program will be moderated by You Are Here guest curator, Sarah Seiter.

Tickets available soon.
