Museum of Walking says
Thursday, February 18, 2016 - 7pm
Grant Street Studios
Cost: FREE and open to the public

The artist discusses his performative walking as a public art practice that seeks to generate conscious culture, in terms of greater individual and collective consciousness of the complex webbing of life, of our Oneness. Pujol will show a selection of images from past durational performance group projects in cities such as Chicago, Honolulu, and Salt Lake.

Ernesto Pujol is a site-specific performance artist and social choreographer based in New York. Pujol believes that socially engaged artists are increasingly relevant to the sustainability of American democracy within an impoverished yet increasingly diverse nation. The artist refers to himself as a cultural worker engaged in conscious making for a healed culture of awareness. He has taught at the School of Visual Arts, Cooper Union, the Rhode Island School of Design, The Art Institute of Chicago, Skowhegan, and Parsons. He has lectured at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Virginia Commonwealth University, and the Maine College of Art. Pujol is the author of "Sited Body, Public Visions: silence, walking & stillness as performance practice," as well as numerous published essays.
