Artist Statement:


    During his residency at the Harwood Art Center, visiting artist Waheguru Khalsa forms a temporary collective with local community members to create The Cultural Urban Mapping Project. Through a series of workshops, participants examine various ways of sharing and representing oral histories. Together the stories and objects that emerge from this process create a portrait of the participants’ collective experience and memory of this place. The project culminates in the creation of a free, self-guided cell phone audio tour of Albuquerque, and an accompanying map with QR codes.
