Event description
To support our ‘On the Map’ exhibition we are working with a team of experts to bring you a series of lunchtime talks.

About this event

This talk will be delivered by Hondartza Fraga, Artist.

Artist Hondartza Fraga has created a drawing and video installation inspired by William Smith’s 1815 Geological Map and the fossil collection at North Lincolnshire Museum.

Fraga’s response is inspired by how Smith’s map makes visible the physical ‘stuff’ beneath our feet but also the dimension of time. Smith’s map reveals the interconnectivity of widely dispersed materials and processes that would otherwise lay beyond human comprehension.

Hondartza Fraga is a visual artist living in Leeds. She is currently studying a Practice-led PhD at the School of Design at the University of Leeds funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council with an award from the White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities. Her research explores the relationship between art and scientific visualisations of remote places.

The talk will start at 1pm and last approximately 1 hour.We hope you will join us to learn more about maps from local experts.
