The Making of Bull: The True Story

Author: Stacy Makishi | Reference: D1539

Programme notes:‘Let's get this straight folks, Bull: The True Story was a pack of lies, a cover up, it was a performance set up to upstage the truth.' The Making of Bull: The True Story unravels mysteries…including the mysteries of why we make art and how our art makes us. It questions what's real and what's fake. Inspired by the film Fargo, which proclaims in its prologue, ‘This is a true story', Hawaii-born Makishi finally comes out and tells the whole truth as she brings forth an elliptical tale trying hard not to tell itself. Just what is she hiding? You'll have to see it to believe it. Stacy Makishi is a Chelsea Theatre Associate Artist. Preceded by a short performance by an early career artist on the bar stage. Post show Q&A with the artist. This item is part of the Study Room Guide On shit, piss, blood, sweat and tears by Lois Keidan (P2195)

This Is Performance Art: Performed Sculpture and Dance

Author: Mel Brimfield | Reference: D1485

Also see P1517 and P1518This Is Performance Art: Performed Sculpture and Dance8th April 2010 – 06 June 2010Camden Arts Centre, co-commissioned by the Yorkshire Sculpture ParkAlso presented as part of Performance Matters: Performing IdeaPerformance Lecture Archive at Whitechapel GalleryMel Brimfield’s residency, This is Performance Art, will be a historical reappraisal of performance art of the 20th Century. Through a series of discussions, documentary research, re-enactments and live performance she will undertake an examination of what can be said to constitute the ontology of ‘live art’ within current discourse. This research will form the basis for a documentary film, the first in a series, charting the new narrative through the fragmented and often unreliable documentary record of this elusive art form. The final film will be screened in the Artists’ Studio at Camden Arts Centre at the culmination of the residency along side a series of live performances and re-enactments. Mel Brimfield’s complex practice takes a skewed and tangled romp through the already vexed historiography of performance art, simultaneously revealing and inventing a rich history of collaboration between artists, dancers, theatre makers, political activists and comedians. Meticulously drawn and painted posters and programmes for fictional interdisciplinary cabarets, together with costumes and props, are produced alongside documentary-style films and live works that playfully associate performance art with most significant cultural developments of the last 100 years.Following the residency, the next phase of This is Performance Art will be shown at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 2011.The final performance will take place three times on 02 JuneThis documentation has since been presented with the permission of the artist as part of the Performance Matters, Performing Idea, Performance Lecture Archive; an interactive video archive housed at the Whitechapel Gallery between 2-9 October 2010. The archive looked at examples of the performance lecture as a form of artistic and critical expression and its potential to address a broad range of cultural issues and philosophical ideas.
