Art and Walking
with Valerie Mendelson, Painter and Art Historian at The New School and The Brearley School

Paul Cézanne

Immersing oneself in experience through walking has long been part of art making and viewing. From meditative walks around the fresco-ed atrium of a Roman Villa, to the pilgrimage art of the Camino de Santiago to contemporary artists such as Francis Alys, artists and viewers have linked the movement of the body, the eyes and the mind. This talk will focus on painters for whom walking has been an important part of their practice.
