Panel — Performative Art & Documentation

Reona Brass, Istvan Kantor

Festivals: M:ST 5 Festival October 8 - 22, 2010.

Justin Waddell will moderate this panel with performative artists that have a long-standing trajectory in the field and are seen by their peers and the community as leaders and innovators. This panel aims to encourage the ongoing development and dissemination of critical dialogue around contemporary performative practices, discussing milestones and difficulties in their careers as performative artists. Performative works are ephemeral or temporary by nature and are preserved only through documentation or written accounts, often becoming a product in and of itself.
