Notes For Friends

September 30, 2014 - January 23, 2015

Examines the act and history of walking through a careful selection of books from Arizona’s permanent collection -  libraries.

Independent curator and Arizona artist, Dana Buhl brings together an exhibition of sorted and splayed books examining a small cross-section of a medium that holds the trace of human exploration. Selections from the disciplines of activism, art, cartography, philosophy, and science are displayed as discourse with the intent of investigating the transformations of our relationship to the act of walking.

Buhl was born and raised in the Phoenix area. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography from Arizona State University. While continuing to exhibit locally Buhl works as the Curatorial Coordinator at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art where her curatorial projects include Bill Owens: Suburbia (2014) and The SMS Portfolios (forthcoming, 2015). Most recently Buhl founded a photo-specific, conversation-driven exhibition space called THE TABLE in the living room of her home hosting monthly exhibitions of local and national photographers.

Notes for Friends is the first official exhibition presented by Museum of Walking, and launches the inaugural 2014 fall season of walking related exhibitions and programmed events.
