“No walk, no work” is a statement that Hamish Fulton has stated to sum up his practice of walking art. He proposes that art can simply be “how you view life” and not tied necessarily to the production of objects. Since the early 1970s, Hamish Fulton has been referred to as a sculptor, photographer, Conceptual artist, Land artist, and self-described walking artist.

This May, Fulton will take a walk in New York City, his first here, as part of Creative Time’s exhibition. Though his walks are historically solitary and staged in the landscape, he will invite a group of up to 25 to participate in this uncharacteristic cityscape walk. A one-hour pre-designated route - 15 minutes north, 15 minutes east, 15 minutes south, 15 minutes west – is paced to cover just one city square block, never crossing an intersection. In slowing down the relationship to and navigation of the city, the artist responds with a new considered approach to the futurist city.

Fulton (born 1946) first came to prominence in the late 1960s as one of a number of artists, including Richard Long and Gilbert & George, who were exploring new forms of sculpture and landscape art. A central characteristic of their practice was a direct physical engagement with landscape. Fulton's time as a student at St. Martin's College of Art in London, 1966-68, and his journeys in South Dakota and Montana in 1969. Influenced by his interest in the environment and the culture of American Indians, he began to make short walks, and then to make photographic works about the experience of walking. Since the early 1970s British artist Hamish Fulton has traveled thousands of miles over five continents in his walking art.  Following a seminal project in 1973, for which he walked 1,022 miles in 47 days, Fulton decided to 'only make art resulting from the experience of individual walks.'
