Panel Discussion: A Curator’s Guide to Live Art17 June 2014
Tuesday 17 June, 7.30 pm
With panel speakers: Marcia Farqhuar (artist), Shaheen Merali (curator), Harold Offeh (artist) and Stephanie Rosenthal (curator). Chaired by Lois Keidan of LADA.
Co-presented with the Live Art Development Agency, this event seeks to consider the increasing ‘institutional’ embrace of Live Art and ephemeral, itinerant performance practices within museums, galleries, biennials and art fairs.
A Curators’ Guide to Live Art will consider some of the issues these developments raise for artists and curators by looking at what Live Art can, and cannot, do in gallery contexts, and the kinds of possibilities and challenges it presents. Artists, curators and thinkers will discuss the tensions between the experiential and unknown nature of much Live Art and the demands of the cultural space to control and contain the art it represents.
