Ways to Wander the [Tate Modern] Gallery
Claire Hind and Clare Qualmann
Every Monday, 18.45–20.45, 12 June – 10 July 2017
Roam the [Tate Modern] gallery and be inspired to create a ‘wander score’ in this five-week course.
Each week makes connections between art works at Tate Modern, walking and experimental writing led by artists and researchers Claire Hind and Clare Qualmann. Investigate the relationship between walking and the page developing links with selected artworks and develop your own written walking language.
Using their book Ways to Wander (2015) as a starting point you are invited to create a page for the next edition Ways to Wander the Gallery (for publication with Triarchy Press, 2018).
Throughout the course expect durational walks, rule-based ambulatory experiences, micro-performances of the everyday, interventions and performance walking encounters. Wanders around Tate’s galleries include work from Bruce Nauman, Rebecca Horn, Charles Atlas, Hito Steyerl, Joseph Beuys, Janet Cardiff, Julie Mehretu and more.
Wander the gallery and consider how we engage with art through walking and produce writing walks for spaces outside of the gallery inspired by artworks at Tate. Walks are complemented by experimental writing/drawing workshops that explore conceptual arts’ relationship to the score, (Fluxus scores, visual treatments, documentation as performance).
