Time Out says

Englewood-born artist and activist Tonika Johnson began her sprawling Folded Map project as a photo series, using the city's grid system to identify and capture residences at corresponding addresses on the North and South Sides in order to explore the visual legacies of segregation, socioeconomic disparities and racial discrimination. The project has since ballooned into a multi-pronged dive into those themes, involving everything from workshops and a stage play to meet-ups for "map twins"—residents who live at corresponding addresses on different sides of the city. You can catch a screening of Johnson's film about the project this weekend; stick around afterwards to listen to a moderated discussion with Johnson about the roots of her work.
