While Walking is a research project that explores walking as an artistic process and practice. How can walking contribute to the creative process? How can we understand walking as an art form? How does interaction with public space influence walking art practices? In what ways does the urban environment become a source of inspiration, distraction or perhaps intimidation? And, more specifically, what experiences do artists who are women encounter as they make art that involves walking the streets?

While Walking is an opportunity to learn from Montreal-based artists who walk as an aspect of their diverse art practices. Excerpts from recorded conversations with the artists will be shared in the format of an audio walk designed to enable the listener to reflect on the artists’ ideas while walking through the city.

Pohanna Pyne Feinberg (artist/educator/curator) walks regularly to open and calm her spirit. Her audio-visual work is propelled by the extraordinary in the ordinary, textures of impermanence, resonance, and compassion. Over the past 10 years, she has developed educational programs and taught for several arts and cultural organizations as well as educational institutions. In 2009, she created www.Inspire, a webzine with the mandate to increase awareness about community-based art in the Montreal region. In 2011, her curatorial project titled [in-tur-pri-tey-shuhnz] explored the intersections between contemporary art and oral history. She received a Masters degree in Art History from Concordia University and is pursuing doctoral research in Art Education with a focus on walking as creative process and aesthetic inquiry.
