Jeriah Hildwine reviews The Underground Railroad Project at July Gallery

"...Meg Onli’s walk (and its accompanying exhibition) deftly sidestep the usual limitations of performance and its documentation. The walk itself is clear evidence that Meg takes her ideas seriously enough to put real work into them. Coupled with this, she’s done her research, and the inclusion of the drawings shows that, like the best conceptual performance artists, she hasn’t lost touch with the aesthetic."

Write Up on The Underground Railroad Project

Claudine Ise wrote a really nice piece on my Underground Railroad Project on the Bad at Sports blog.

via Bad at Sports
“Pilgrimage is one of the fundamental structures a journey can take–the quest in search of something, if only one’s own transformation, the journey toward a goal–and for pilgrims, walking is work,' writes Rebecca Solnit in the book Wanderlust: A History of Walking. Last summer artist Meg Onli (who, as you all know, blogs here at Bad at Sports and is an associate producer of the Podcast) discovered this for herself. Inspired by the perilous journeys taken by fugitive slaves along the underground railroad, Onli undertook her own pilgrimage by setting out on a 30 day, 440 mile trek that began in Montgomery County, Maryland, the birthplace of Josiah Henson (who inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin) and ended at Dawn, a settlement in Dresden, Ontario that is the site of the cabin home Hensen eventually built for himself after his escape to Canada."
