Long Walks On The Beach

Long Walks on the Beach


Dates: August 25-26, 2012
Location: Rockaway Beach

Long Walks on the Beach, by Dillon de Give, is a public project that provides a framework to literally enact a cliché with a stranger. On August 25th and 26th randomly paired people will take a long walk on the beach together. This is an experience-based artwork that uses walking as its medium. Each pair may become friends for life, or never speak to each other again. During the weekend of facilitated walks, a broadcast station will be available to share important conversational insights.

Would you like to take a long walk on the beach? There are a limited number of appointments. Please be ready to state your availability for the weekend of August 25th and 26th. First call, first served. Call (917) 300-9521 to make an appointment with a stranger.

Long Walks on the Beach is the first in a seasonal series of dual stranger walks in affiliation with The Walk Exchange and Flux Factory. This series is part of Flux Factory’s upcoming Fall 2013 exhibition, Untitled (As of Yet), a group show about unexpected circumstances, the breakdown of routine, and displacement as a potentially fruitful phenomenon.
