This exhibition is being brought to Plymouth thanks to a partnership between Peninsula Arts, Plymouth University; Plymouth Arts Centre; Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery and Plymouth College of Art Gallery.
‘Walk On: From Richard Long to Janet Cardiff – 40 Years of Art Walking’ gives an insight into the recent art practice of nearly 40 artists. Several are internationally acclaimed. Others are bright new talents. All of them have made new work simply by taking a journey on foot.
Some of the featured artists have crossed countries and continents, leaving traces of their movements upon the land or making epic journeys along historic sites. Others have explored the possibilities of walking and how the way we walk shows the world who we are. For some, the walk itself is the artwork. Anything else is simply evidence or documentation captured in the photographs, objects or texts from their journeys.
This is one major exhibition displayed across four city centre sites and it will be backed with a dedicated education and event programme.
Admission to all sites is free.
