LINCOLN, MASS.- DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum presents Walking Sculpture 1967–2015, an exhibition about the history and practice of walking as a means for questioning social, political, economic, and artistic hierarchies. The exhibition opened May 9, 2015, and will be on view in the galleries and the Sculpture Park through September 13, 2015.

Featured artists include Francis Alÿs, Hannah Barco, Stanley Brouwn, André Cadere, Tyler Coburn, Kate Colby and Todd Shalom, Catherine D’Ignazio, Simon Faithfull, Shilpa Gupta, Sharon Hayes, Wendy Jacob, Joachim Koester, Melanie Manchot, Helen Mirra, Bruce Nauman, Paulo Nazareth, Michelangelo Pistoletto, and William Pope.L.

Inspired by Michelangelo Pistoletto’s 1967 performance Walking Sculpture, in which the artist rolled a newspaper sphere through city streets in Turin, Italy, Walking Sculpture 1967–2015 features an international selection of artists who engage in walking as an autonomous form of art, as cartography, as an exploration of physical experience, and as social practice. Pistoletto’s walking performance was an act of dissonance against both traditional methods of art-making and behavioral norms. In the same spirit, Walking Sculpture 1967–2015 considers artists’ use of this elemental and often overlooked act as a poetic means for questioning established conventions of seeing and thinking.

Sculpture, video, photography, and performance converge in this exhibition to address the multidisciplinary practice of ambulation through the cityscape and the countryside. Walking Sculpture 1967–2015 is accompanied by a robust slate of public programming, including commissioned and artist-led walks in deCordova’s own Sculpture Park and in surrounding conservation lands in Lincoln and Concord, Massachusetts.

The exhibition is organized by Assistant Curator Lexi Lee Sullivan and will be accompanied by a catalogue distributed by Yale University Press.
