Walking surveys the proliferation of pedestrian practices across contemporary art, taking an avowedly political stance on where and how the three practices of art, walking and writing intersect.

Across the world, walking remains a vital way to assert one's presence in public space and discourse. Foregrounding work by Black artists, Indigenous artists and artists of colour, working-class artists, LGBTQI+ artists, disabled artists and neurodiverse artists, as well as many others, Walking maps the terrain of contemporary walking practices while examining the diverse voices and bodies of those who incorporate walking into their art. This anthology contends that, as a relational practice, walking inevitably touches upon questions of access, public space, land ownership and use; it is therefore always a political act. Walking offers a vital opportunity to draw attention to the work of those who are frequently denied the right to take their places in public space, not only in the street or the countryside but also in art discourse.
