Guggenheim UBS MAP launches new interactive map
The launch of MAP Navigator coincided with the opening of Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today, the second of three Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative exhibitions.

NEW YORK, NY.- The Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative recently launched MAP Navigator, a new interactive tool that knits together videos, blog posts, audio, and background on the artists for each geographic region associated with the initiative: South and Southeast Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East and North Africa. Resources are mapped as interactive points around the globe, inviting visitors to browse this vast library of digital content, which includes video profiles of artists, audio recordings and transcripts of symposia held in New York and Bangkok, and in-depth written perspectives on arts and culture.

The launch of MAP Navigator coincided with the opening of Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today, the second of three Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative exhibitions. Organized by Pablo León de la Barra, Under the Same Sun investigates creative responses by 40 artists and collectives representing 15 countries to economic, historical, political, and social factors across Latin America. All works have been newly acquired for the Guggenheim’s collection under the auspices of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Purchase Fund. The artworks in the New York presentation are organized around six themes:





•Political Activism

•The Tropical

Following its presentation in New York, Under the Same Sun will travel to Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo (MAM) in Brazil and Museo Jumex in Mexico City. To complement the project’s mission of stimulating international dialogue, the MAP website also features contributions by artists, curators, and scholars, as well as in-depth material about each artist whose work has been acquired as part of MAP. Through the project’s blog, online visitors are invited to follow MAP through unique Perspectives on Latin America, Dispatches from León de la Barra's research trips, and monthly project updates.

The exhibition is accompanied by a dynamic series of programs for adults and families, including artist talks, performances, and gallery tours held in Spanish and Portuguese. Both museumgoers and those unable to attend the exhibition in person can download the free Guggenheim app to access a rich multimedia experience of Under the Same Sun, including exclusive audio and video, commentary on the exhibition’s themes from León de la Barra and exhibition artists, family and school programs, verbal imaging tours for visitors who are partially sighted or blind, information on over 900 works in the collection, and more.
