In Terms of Performance, an anthology co-edited by Shannon Jackson and Paula Marincola, and produced by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage and the Arts Research Center of UC Berkeley, has been published!
In Terms of Performance provokes dialogue, debate, and discovery in a free, web-based keywords anthology, designed to generate shared literacies across artistic disciplines. More than 50 prominent artists, curators, presenters, and scholars—including Janine Antoni, Judith Butler, Simon Dove, RoseLee Goldberg, Kathy Halbreich, Jens Hoffmann, Ishmael Houston-Jones,Young Jean Lee, Ralph Lemon, and William Kentridge—offer their distinct perspectives in essays and interviews that reflect on common yet contested terms, the poetry of miscommunication, and the stakes of literacy in our current context of hybrid cultural production.
