LADA Screens: Katherine Araniello, a celebration

Please join us for an evening to celebrate the life and Live Art of the brilliant and inspirational artist Katherine Araniello who died on Monday 25 February 2019.

Katherine was an extraordinary human being, a beloved friend of LADA, a long-standing LADA Board member, a fearless activist, and an artist who was central to so many of our publications, projects, events and professional developments programmes over many years. We will be bereft without her in our life.  As Katherine's fellow LADA Board member Dominic Johnson said on hearing of her passing, "Live Art feels that bit less interesting and wild without her.”

We had been working with Katherine on a LADA Screens* programme for this April, and so with the blessing of her partner and family we are turning the planned event into a memorial and a celebration of Katherine – showing a selection of her amazing film works, hearing from collaborators and artists about what she meant to them and to Live Art, and collectively raising a glass of Prosecco to her.

LADA is also working with Katherine’s partner and family on Katherine’s legacy and is setting up an annual Katherine Araniello Bursary for an unapologetically radical and politicised artist who works in Live Art and identifies as a disabled person. We plan to launch the Bursary at the memorial event on 16 April.


*LADA Screens is a series of free, online screenings of seminal performance documentation, works to camera, short films/video and archival footage. Each LADA Screens is launched with a live event at LADA and is then  available to view online for a limited time only on LADA’s dedicated Live Online video channel.
