California Walkscapes: Call for Submissions
Submit by: August 25th, 2018
Incline Gallery, San Francisco
When we walk, our feet carry our bodies through space. When we walk, our body is exposed to innumerous stimuli. Supported by our senses, we enter a field that requires us to constantly adapt to the changing environment and generate meaning that allows us to create knowledge needed to continue traversing streets, alleys, roads, and other passageways opening up in front of us. Whether in a city or rural landscape, through the act of walking, the physical, topographical and socio cultural layout of the environment we live in is understood experientially. Inspired by Francesco Careri’s publication this exhibit asks what information can we unearth through the act of walking?
For “California Walkscapes” (2018) artist are invited to respond to walking from a number of different perspectives – for example, considering walking in the context of the body, urbanity, place, migration or culture.
