Grace Exhibition Space
Aaron Wright will be giving a talk entitled Live Art Now on the UK Live Art scene and the work of LADA at Grace Exhibition Space on Friday April 4th (8pm).
LADA provides Resources, Opportunities, Projects and Publishing for the support and development of artists, audiences, students, writers, presenters and researchers in the UK and internationally. We work with some of the most challenging artists, practices and ideas of our times, and create the conditions in which difficulty, diversity, innovation and risk in contemporary culture can thrive.
For the last 15 years LADA has produced a range of significant programmes including Live Culture at Tate Modern (2003), Performance Matters (2010-2014) and published books such as Out of Now: The Lifeworks of Tehching Hsieh (2006) and Pleading in the Blood: The Art and Performance of Ron Athey (2013). LADA also houses the world's largest open access Study Room of Live Art related books and documentation.
Live Art Now is one of LADA's first public programmes in the USA, the other being Access All Areas: Live Art & Disability (NYC Edition) at Abrons Arts Centre on Saturday March 29th (10am to 6pm)
