Walk WaysWalk Ways

Published by Independent Curators International, New York.
Essay by Stuart Horodner. Foreword by Judith Richards.

The agency of pedestrianism in the realm of civic creativity has become a major tool for contemporary art, particularly since the 60s. Walk Ways explores this theme of walking as an action and a metaphor. From Eleanor Antin, Janine Antoni, Janet Cardiff and Hamish Fulton to Martin Kersels, Nancy Spero, Richard Wentworth and others, the artists in Walk Ways consider walking as a purposeful or meandering activity that unites bodily and mental freedom, and "the walk" as a means of commenting on human agency, politics, geography and history.

Janet Cardiff: The Walk BookJanet Cardiff: The Walk Book

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Foreword by Francesca von Habsburg.

This is the definitive edition documenting Janet Cardiff's audio Walks in Paris, London, and New York. For these walks, Cardiff provided gallery-goers with walkmans which led them through the cities relying solely on the acoustic guide. The urban environment thus became the scene of a mysterious narrative in which the visitors became ever more involved. An artist's book with a CD that “guides” readers through the book with regards to text and illustrations.

Ed Panar: Golden PalmsEd Panar: Golden Palms

Published by J&L Books.
Edited by Ed Panar, Jason Fulford. Interview by Charlotte Cotton.

When Ed Panar moved to Los Angeles, he opted not to get a car. Or a high-end camera. For two years. His compact was, "quick, cheap and direct, and that seemed to suit L.A." The color photographs collected in Golden Palms reflect Panar's walking life there, with the cumulative effect of a subtly funny tour through the city's lost back streets--parts of contemporary Los Angeles that most people would simply speed past in their cars. His subjects, including "The 405," "Near Ventura Boulevard," "Tuesday Afternoon," "Summer" and "Coming Home," were often, he says, "like cartoon characters I'd find while I was walking around, like the rainspout attached to the wall, in a city where it doesn't rain." And like that rain spout, many of the images capture especially peculiar intersections of nature and architecture, like a set of gnarled, clawlike tree roots gripping the sidewalk, a squirrel ignoring a trash can next to his tree, or palm trees photographed against stucco walls, looking like Dr. Seussian vegetation straight out of The Lorax. With an interview by the esteemed photo historian and curator, Charlotte Cotton.

Hamish Fulton: Keep MovingHamish Fulton: Keep Moving

Published by Charta/Museion.
Essays by Reinhold Messner, Andreas Hapkemeyer and Angela Vettese.

Keep Moving is an artist's book by Hamish Fulton, the British “walking artist.” At the core of Fulton's practice are the experiences he accumulates during his perambulations, which he records in photographs, pictograms and texts. The exploration of self and the encounter with nature become one and the same. Keep Moving resulted from a period of time the artist spent in the Corvara region of the Dolomites in the summer of 2004, during which he went on eight day-long walks and a guided climb, using a small mountain hut as his base. Contributing an essay here is legendary mountaineer Reinhold Messner, with whom Fulton hiked the imagined trail followed by Ötzi the Iceman, whose 5,000-year-old skeleton was recently discovered in the South Tyrol.

Miroslav Tichy: Dedicated to The Women of KyjovMiroslav Tichy: Dedicated to The Women of Kyjov

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Clint Burnham, Roman Buxbaum, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Harald Szeemann.

After studying at the Academy of Arts in Prague, Miroslav Tichy, born in 1926 in the former Czechoslovakia, withdrew to a life of isolation in his hometown of Kyjov. In the late 1950s, he stopped painting and, during his daily walks, began to take photographs of women with cameras he made by hand. He mounted his prints on handmade frames and added finishing touches in pencil, shifting from photography to drawing. Disregarding the rules of photography, for four decades Tichy created a large oeuvre of poetic, dreamlike views of female beauty.
A former neighbor, Roman Buxbaum, discovered Tichy's hidden work in the 1980s and has been documenting and collecting it ever since. In 2004, the esteemed international curator Harald Szeemann mounted the first solo exhibition of the nearly 80-year-old artist. That same year, Tichy was given the Rencontres d'Arles Photographie Discovery Award and the Kunsthaus Zurich organized a large retrospective. Solo exhibitions at the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Museum of Modern Art (MMK) Frankfurt followed in 2008. Tichy does not see his exhibitions, for he no longer leaves his house. This beautifully produced, thorough volume collects the work--perfectly.

Going StayingGoing Staying

Movement, Body, Place in Contemporary Art

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Volker Adolphs.

Are you staying or are you going? The question encapsulates a range of physical actions, intellectual concerns and emotional wranglings--whether over a late-night decision to remain at a party or a tortuous choice to end a love affair. Contemporary art--through the newer, time-based media of video, performance and installation and through the novel use of traditional media--is well equipped to deal with these vicissitudes. This volume is composed of works by 36 artists, from the 1960s to the present, who have explored this rich territory, including Marina Abramovi?/Ulay, Joseph Beuys, Willie Doherty, Olafur Eliasson, Mona Hatoum, William Kentridge, Sigalit Landau, Richard Long, Bruce Nauman, Tony Oursler, Pipilotti Rist, Bill Viola, Rachel Whiteread and Andrea Zittel. Their works have a sense of transition and liminal space: Long in the act of walking, for example, or Zittel’s creation of systems for mobile living.

Sandi Haber Fifield: Walking through the WorldSandi Haber Fifield: Walking through the World

Published by Charta.
Text by Arthur Ollman, Tom O'Connor.

In this dreamy first monograph on photographer Sandi Haber Fifield, the artist culls through her image bank as we scan our imaginations, according to essayist Tom O'Connor, "following lines of thought that are rarely linear, exploring connections and chasing memories, drawing on books read, films seen, meals shared, startling flashes of insight and mundane walks with the dog..." Fifield's landscapes and surreptitious portraits draw in and out of focus, lulling the viewer with their gentle but pure colors and always the sense of time passing. A view of a snowy landscape passing by the car window; a glimpse of a perfect day caught in the gap between a set of drawn curtains; the back of a young redhead's neck; and an idyllic suburban yard blurred almost to abstraction by a window screen are just a few of the images captured here.
Sandi Haber Fifield is represented by Littlejohn Contemporary in New York. Her photographs have been collected by a number of institutions, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Robert Adams: Summer Nights, WalkingRobert Adams: Summer Nights, Walking

Published by Aperture/Yale University Art Gallery.

In this exquisitely produced book, the influential American photographer Robert Adams revisits the classic collection of nocturnal landscapes that he began making in the mid-1970s near his former home in Longmont, Colorado. Originally published by Aperture in 1985 as Summer Nights, this new edition has been carefully reedited and resequenced by the photographer, who has added 39 previously unpublished images. Illuminated by moonlight and streetlamp, the houses, roads, sidewalks and fields in Summer Nights, Walking retain the wonder and stillness of the original edition, while adopting the artist's intention of a dreamy fluidity, befitting his nighttime perambulations. The extraordinary care taken with the new reproductions also registers Adams' attention to the subtleties of the night, and conveys his appeal to look again at places we might have dismissed as uninteresting. Adams observes, "What attracted me to the subjects at a new hour was the discovery then of a neglected peace."
