If You Lived Here You'de be Home, Group Exhibition, 2015

The Children's Museum of the Arts, 103 Charlton Street, New York NY 10014, USA

A group exhibition of artists who use maps as their personal playgrounds. Other artist included, Matthew Cusick, Joyce Kozloff, Barbara Macfarlane, Loren Munk, Nikki Rosato, Nike Schröeder & Robert Walden.

Susan showed her 'Highland Dress', an empty life-sized female dress composed of ordinance survey maps of the Scottish Highlands glued together. Stockwell delivers a visual blow to English colonization and occupation of Scotland over 300 years. Using military maps to create a woman’s dress sends a double message of war and politics being dominated by men in Western history. The strongly posed representation of feminism battles against male denial of power and suggests that men can only settle disputes through wars.
