Hamish Fulton

Hamish Fulton, born 1946 in London, is a British walking artist, who since 1972 has made works based on the experience of walks. Arguing that “walking is an art form in its own right,” Fulton translates his walks into photographs, drawings and wall texts. Although only Fulton himself experiences the walk itself, his works allow the beholder to engage with his experience. In the past his walks have had him travel extensively to countries including England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland,  France,  Italy,  Switzerland,  Austria,  Germany,  Norway, Lapland,  Iceland, Spain,  Portugal,  The  United  States,  Mexico,  Canada,  Peru,  Bolivia,  Argentina,  Nepal,  India, Australia, Japan and Tibet. On several occasions he organized group walking projects, including Walk On, Walking East – Walking West, Plymouth, England (2014), Straße des 17. Juni, Berlin, Germany (2014), Between Penzance and Marazion, England (2013), Walk 3: Boulogne-sur-Mer, France (2010), Walk 2: Margate Sands, England, Walk 1: Canterbury, England (2010), Domaine De Chamarande, France, alongside 23 walkers (1998), Fondazione Antionio Ratti, Como, Italy, alongside 26 walkers (1998) and C.C.A. (formally C.A.S.K.) Kitakyushu, Japan, alongside 14 walkers (1994).

Hamish Fulton studied at Hammersmith College of Art, St. Martin’s School of Art and the Royal College of Art in London. Fulton’s work has been shown extensively around the world. Important solo exhibitions include Ikon Gallery (2012), Turner Contemporary (2012), Museion (2005), Tate Britain (2002), and Museu Serralves (2001).  Major group exhibitions include documenta (1977; 1982), the Bienal de Arte Paiz in Guatemala City (2016), Schaulager, Basel (2015), MOCA, Los Angeles (2012), Royal Academy of Arts, London (2011), CAPC – Musée d’art contemporain, Bordeaux (2002), Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney (2000) and Solomon R.
