This is the first in a series of convenings organized by the ARC Art + Time research
group that will bring together artists, scholars and curators to discuss the blurring
boundary between performance and visual art, and how this inter-penetration impacts
the creation, presentation, and reception of new work. This first iteration will ask:
What does it mean to produce visual artists whose work incorporates live performance,
or theatre/dance artists who are presenting their work in galleries and museums?
What are the headaches, the new skill sets needed, the unforeseen consequences?
To jump-start the conversation, symposium participants have been asked to post
some brief thoughts in advance of the event. To read (and respond to) their musings,
please visit ARC Muses, the Arts Research Center blog.
