The title of this short film program was inspired by Richard Long’s famous 1967 land art piece, A Line Made by Walking. What does it mean to ‘walk a line’ in today’s context of geopolitical and gender-based categorizations and boundaries? In the films in this program, artists walk in rural countrysides, but their aim is not to catapult art out of the gallery – as Long sought to do when he first turned the green English countryside into a land art site. Instead, these works bring the politics of boundaries into the white cubes and black boxes of the art world.
