Tonika Lewis Johnson’s ongoing Folded Map project connects residents who live at corresponding addresses in the North and South Side neighborhoods of Chicago. By documenting architectural aspects of the neighborhoods and conversations between residents, Tonika demonstrates how a city of renowned institutions and robust tourism is also a city that struggles with issues of racial inequality and segregation.

Exploring questions of how Chicago’s Folded Map might shape our identities and political realities, CHICAGO CULTURE LAB presents Map & Meaning: A conversation with

Dr. Mary Pattillo, Harold Washington Professor of Sociology and African, Northwestern University

Katanya Raby, Southside based Urban Planner, CMAP

Tonika Johnson, Artist & Creator of Folded Map
