“I love going out of my way, beyond what I know, and finding my way back a few extra miles, by another trail, with a compass that argues with the map… Moments when I say to myself as feet or car clear a crest or round a bend, I have never seen this place before.”

—Rebecca Solnit, A Field Guide to Getting Lost

Dovetail Magazine is thrilled to share PATH, the first group feature on The Niche since its relaunch in 2022. Fifteen artists from around the world who work in a variety of media explore perceptions of the space between Point A and Point B—and beyond. They examine how we move, how the ground meets our feet, how the environment changes, how we change as we move, and how we navigate our inner paths.
