Walking in the City, Museum of Fine Arts

Curated by Wendy Jacob and Liz Munsell May 31, 2012

Walking in the City is a selection of videos and films by emerging and established artists who use the streets, plazas, and architecture of the city as sites for their own creative use: as a theater for performance, an arena for sport or dance, a site for political action, or a place for exploration. The title of the screening is borrowed from Michel De Certeau’s influential text, The Practice of Everyday Life, in which he describes the actions of urban walkers as small acts of resistance, set against the authority of the city grid. The featured works span four decades of performative or social artistic practices that challenge conventional uses of urban space.
