Saunter Trek Escort Parade… (S.T.E.P…) is the first of its kind; a walking-based art exhibition featuring an inter-generational group of artists representing more than ten countries, many bodies and abilities plus walking events. Our exhibition seeks to be an overlapping convergence and entanglement of walking, walk-based works and programing, mobilizing throughout New York City. S.T.E.P… is open to all people of all abilities.
S.T.E.P… embraces the many ways and bodies we walk while asking how walking as a creative act can challenge notions and open conversations around visibility, gender, labor, exploration, counter mapping, colonialism, feminism, motherhood, contesting borders, community building, calling out gentrification, street harassment, (dis)ability, carbon debt, who sets the pace and measurement of the world, to the power of dreams and our entanglements between all of these and one another.
