About this Event

L´╗┐earn more about Contemporary Cartographies: Mapping Identity, MOCA Jacksonville's latest exhibition featuring works from its permanent collection curated by Assistant Curator Shana Dickler.

A map is commonly defined as a graphic representation, drawn to scale, that concretely depicts features of an area. However, the way in which each of us map our world is abstract and individualistic, informed by our unique experiences. Contemporary Cartographies includes works from MOCA Jacksonville's permanent collection, complemented by loans from local and national artists, charting their surrounding landscape both literally and figuratively; whether it be through tracing a familiar route, capturing the movement of a bustling city, or portraying the people and features of the milieu that defines them.


Shana Dickler graduated in May 2019 from New College of Florida where she received her bachelor's degree in Art History with a minor in Fine Art. Prior to her position at MOCA Jacksonville, she interned at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens in Jacksonville and the John and Mable Ringling Museum in Sarasota working in the curatorial department at both institutions.

Dickler joined MOCA Jacksonville in September 2019 as a curatorial assistant. She completes extensive research for upcoming exhibitions and assists in the creation of exhibition didactics, among other responsibilities.
