In 2008-9, Cathy will be working with Dr Deirdre Heddon, University of Glasgow on a collaborative research project, funded by the British Academy, to collate and explore work made by women artists who use walking as a primary material or resource.
We would very much like to hear of or from women artists who use, or have used, walking in their work (whether as walkers themselves, or by setting up walking activities for others to do, etc. – the only limit is that it is framed as an art practice).
If you are, or know of, an artist that this research applies to, please do let us know (you can find my e-mail on the contacts page).
Whilst this stage of the research is primarily focused on artists resident in the UK, we would nevertheless also like to learn of artists working outside the UK too.
