Through Here | The Center for Imaginative Cartography & Research
Downstairs Front BOX

Where does the mind go when the body is wandering? Where does our heart go? Through Here is an exploration of the way we navigate spaces, both physical and psychological, and the signs that guide us. Using daily walks as physical starting points, The Center for Imaginative Cartography & Research has produced a collection of sculptures, textiles, drawings, and prints to chart intellectual and emotional roaming. The work moves through our contemporary moment, looking for places to rest or pass, to affirm or resist, to admit doubt or discover possibility.

The Center for Imaginative Cartography and Research is a collaborative project, started in 2011, between Erik Sultzer and Emily Halbardier. Together, they explore and document relationships between creative production, community, and place. Erik Sultzer was born and raised in Western Kansas, and received his BFA in Painting from the University of Kansas. Emily Halbardier was born and raised in Houston, and received her BFA in Painting from the University of Houston. Both artists received their MFAs in Studio Art from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and are currently living and working together in the Houston area. Activities include walking, sharing, zine making, beer brewing, mixed-media installations, public lectures, educational workshops, critical writing, baking bread, fermenting everything, and spending time with others.
