When Harriet Jacobs, an African-American woman born into slavery, escaped bondage in the mid-1800s, she hid in the last place her pursuers thought to look: her grandmother’s attic. Using stories like her’s as inspiration, four contemporary artists take a 21st-century look at how unequal social relations shape our views of geography and environment.
