Venice Agendas 2013: Live Art
Live Art—Are you here? Were you there?
Chaired by Jean Wainwright, speakers include Kathy Battista, Tony Heaton, rAndom International, Lois Keidan, Lauren A Wright and artists Marcia Farquhar, Joan Jonas, Marta Jovanovic, Andrea Pagnes and Verena Stenke. Recorded Wednesday, 29 May, 2013.
As performance art becomes increasingly visible in the programmes and collections of major museums and galleries, this event aims to evaluate the current status of performance and live art. A series of brief presentations will ask whether this inclusion kills the element of risk often related to performance or if live practices enable institutions to challenge their audiences. The session will also consider the unintended performer and raise issues that encompass disability and gender.

Venice Agendas is a series of breakfast events and performances during the preview week of the 55th Venice Biennale. This is the eighth in the Agendas series, which since 1999 has examined different aspects of contemporary art practice. This year’s event focuses on performance art and the alternative scene: its history, legacy and future.
Venice Agendas was developed by Bill Furlong and Mel Gooding. The new team under the guidance of Bill and Mel continues the innovation and determination to construct a series of topical and intelligent discussions, talks, debates and recordings. workinprogress have taken up the baton and have organised the 2011 and 2013 Agendas.
