Walk On

On Ways of Walking and Making Art

Walk On previewed in London at PM Gallery. The exhibition was curated by myself in collaboration with Art Circuit (Cynthia Morrison-Bell) and Alistair Robinson, Curator, NGCA assisted by Janet Ross. I  wrote an essay for the catalogue called 'On Walking and Making Art'. For me, this was the culmination of three years research as a writer (developing from research for my PhD), an artist and a curator. The complete 'version' of this exhibition opened at the NGCA on 1st June 2013 and then toured the UK. Click here to see an online copy of the catalogue. For more details click more information below.

Including photography, film, and installation works, this exhibition brings together a diverse group of artists inspired by their travels on foot. From land art and conceptual art to street photography and the essay film, across the last four decades many artists have acted as explorers whether making their mark on the rural wilderness, documenting small journeys, or undertaking close examination of the urban environment around them.
