The 75 minute walk begins and ends at Cardinal, where there will be an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. This walk holds 12 people. If you’d like to attend the walk please RSVP to cardinalspace@gmail.com.

Artist talks with Susie Brandt and Miguel Braceli

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2 P.M.

Susie Brandt will discuss her work, All The Walks (2010), included in the exhibition. Everyday that Brandt was in Baltimore in the year 2010 the artist took a walk and made a gps recording of her route. These traces of these walks were then translated into a textile map of the city. Miguel Braceli will discuss his work Irazú (2016), which occurred in a volcano in Costa Rica. Along with 70 participants, the artist created a public action that explored the construction of collective outdoor spaces.

artist walk with j$Fur

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2 P.M.

J$Fur will lead a participatory walk focusing on the sonic landscape in Baltimore using chance operations scoring. The 60 minute walk will begin at Cardinal’s gallery and meander through the Bolton Hill neighborhood. Drawing from the Situationist's concept of the dérive, which is a type of meandering walk,and guided by environmental, intuitive cues, rather than by traditional maps or other types of navigation, J$Fur's walk will focus specifically on sound as a guiding force. Audience participants will investigate their personal relationship to sounds in their immediate environment, and join together to create a collective reflection of each person's experience of psychogeographical exploration. Please wear comfortable shoes.


October

Artist Walk with Malcolm Peacock

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2 P.M.

Malcolm Peacock will present a public walk that explores themes of codependency and interdependency. Focusing on a range of lived experiences that took place in Baltimore between the years of 2016-2019, Peacock asks us to consider how our own personal histories and the ways that we regard them, impact the emotional and physical spaces that we occupy in the present.

This walk begins at the Main Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library (400 Cathedral Street). You are encouraged to participate in this walk with a partner or be willing to be paired with another person. Please bring a fully charged smartphone or internet-connected device, as we will be listening to audio tracks from online sources.
