Artist Appearance

Remember Ben Carson's map of the United States? Well, artist Dan Mills could help him out by examining the world in a new and innovative way. Mills, director of the Bates College Museum of Art, will give a public Art Talk at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (UMOCA), followed by questions and discussion with the artist. Mills uses cartography and other systems of visualizing and codifying information. He also uses maps as a space to visualize data about current wars. UMOCA's upcoming Main Gallery exhibition, Ideologue, features a selection from Mills' U.S. Future States Atlas series that reconfigures the global future of U.S. imperialism. Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, 20 S. West Temple, 801-328-4201, Dec. 9, 7 p.m., suggested $5 donation; Ideologue on exhibition Feb. 5-July 23,
