The artists presented in the Richmond Art Gallery’s new exhibit, Andante (a walking pace), explore the theme of walking through a range of media that includes photography, woven textiles, audio-visual, sculpture, installation and GPS tracks. They include Cheryl L’Hirondelle, Mike Andrew McLean, Haruko Okano, Ruth Scheuing and UWHAH, a collaborative entity of Vancouver artists.

The exhibit was conceived as a vehicle for showing art that examines our surroundings, both literally and imaginatively, with an emphasis on conceptual works, narratives and reflections on the practice of being attentive to surroundings while walking. Many of the artworks comment on the responses to the urban and rural landscapes as they are walked through, while others address new ways of understanding how, where and why we walk. The curators contend, “The history of walking has the capacity for narratives that hold cultural, political, social and spiritual meanings. From aboriginal rituals, religious and political pilgrimages, to intrepid explorers, artists, writers and folk simply moving from one place to another, walking has inspired, challenged and been the subject of artistic investigation.”
