On view through Saturday, December 18th

Hamish Fulton has been making text-pieces, images, and sculptures in response to his relationship with the surrounding environment since the 1960s. In 1973, he decided to “only make art resulting from the experience of individual walks,” a declaration that he has since upheld. Past locations for Fulton’s walks have taken place all over the world, and include Alaska, England, Mexico, Japan, Nepal, Spain and the United States. Fulton’s work asks viewers to consider spaces outside the gallery setting, alternate ways of inhabiting the earth, community and even our own mortality. This exhibition includes drawings, photographic and text-based works, large-scale vinyl murals and wood sculptures all created in response to walks conducted from the 1990s until present.
