Long Walks in the Museum is a public project that positions people in relation to art. It is a sequence of planned one-on-one walks which pass through galleries designated “Egyptian”, “American”, “Medieval”, “European”, “African/Oceanic/American”, and “Greek” in one of the preeminent cultural institutions of New York City.
This is an invitation to be led by an unofficial docent, and to serve as an unofficial docent. No experience is necessary. An alternative exhibition catalogue will be opened for entries at the end of each walk. To schedule an appointment, please call 917-300-9521. Note: appointments are limited.
Long Walks in the Museum, by Dillon de Give, is the third 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. It is supported by National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
