Walking Sculpture

May 7, 2015

This weekend, the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, Massachusetts, will open Walking Sculpture 1967–2015. The exhibition and its catalogue examine artists who use walking as a form of art—as subject, psychological investigation, or aesthetic practice. Works featured include performances, videos, photography, and sculptures by Bruce Nauman, William Pope.L, Francis Alÿs, Stanley Brouwn, and many others.

Marquand Books produced the 88-page catalogue for Walking Sculpture, which was designed by Jeff Wincapaw and includes fifty color images. The book features an essay by deCordova Assistant Curator Lexi Lee Sullivan, a collection of poems by Cole Swensen, and a series of photographs by Helen Mirra.

Walking Sculpture 1967–2015 will run through September 13. The book is distributed by Yale University Press; visit their website to purchase a copy.
