On the Road is an ambitious exhibition project, organised by the Government of Galicia, that takes place in Santiago de Compostela (Spain) between June and November to commemorate the 800th anniversary of Francis of Assisi's trip to Santiago de Compostela. The exhibition structure is intrinsically related to ideas underpinning the attitude of Francis of Assisi that are still highly topical. The exhibition's curator, Gloria Moure, has brought together a significant collection of works by 35 artists of varying origins, including some of the leading international figures in contemporary art of the last four decades. The exhibits include site-specific pieces such as those by Francis Alÿs, Jorge Barbi, Christian Boltanski, Tacita Dean, Jimmie Durham, Guillermo Faivovich & Nicolás Goldberg, Richard Long, Perejaume or Lawrence Weiner. LINK deasisacompostela
