Performance Art in Ireland: A History – USA Book tour

Performance Art in Ireland: A History edited by Áine Phillips is the first book devoted to the history and contemporary forms of Irish performance art in the north and south of Ireland, bringing together contributions by prominent Irish artists and major academics. It features rigorous critical and theoretical analysis as well as historical commentaries that provide an absorbing sense of the rich histories of performance art in Ireland. Presenting diverse visual documentation of performance art practices, this collection shows how performance art in Ireland engaged with—and in turn influenced and led—contemporary performance and Live Art internationally.

Launch events will be happening in the United States over February 2016 to mark the publication and will feature both performances and lectures by Áine Phillips.

Performance Art in Ireland: A History is published by the Live Art Development Agency and Intellect Books and is available to buy now on Unbound.
