Published by Te Uru Waitākere Contemporary Gallery, About walking documents and discusses performance based walks travelling through time, across a 15-month period, and through geography, across west Auckland. This diverse program of works investigated walking as an artistic strategy in the context of Aotearoa and positioned walking as a participatory activity, co-performed by the artist and walkers – together or together-apart.

The beautifully illustrated publication brings together discussions on the history and practice of walking-as-art and the integration of maramataka into the fabric of programming and creating, as well as artist reflections, commissioned responses to individual works, excerpts from performance scripts, and a manifesto.

About walking was supported by an Auckland Council Regional Arts Grant and funding from the Albert-Eden and Whau Local Boards. Te Uru receives support from the Waitākere Ranges Local Board. This publication was made possible through research funding from Unitec.
