For Royal Jarmon‘s second solo exhibition at NYC‘s The Hole, the artist has centered his focus on maps—an obsession since childhood. The show—called Respire—just “opened” online, but also occupies the gallery’s Bowery space. It’s there that Jarmon painted a mural—a performance piece in many ways, and a divergence from his typical approach to unveiling an artwork. We spoke with him about the inspiration he draws from maps, the virtual exhibition, and the city of New York.
