Performance Magazine Online: Launch Event London

Performance Magazine Online

Between 1979-1992 Performance Magazine documented an extraordinary period in the development of art in the UK.

LADA is working with the original editor, Rob La Frenais, on a new online archive of the magazine, a film by Hugo Glendinning about its the history and legacy, and commissioned artist responses by Anne Bean, Hester Reeve and Nahum Mantra which will respond to and re-contextualise the magazine for the 21st century. 

Launch Event London

The British Library event will include the launch of the online archive, a screening of Hugo Glendinning’s film and commissioned performances by Hester Reeve and Nahum Mantra.

Look out for announcements of a seminar and workshop looking at Live Art, writing and digital publishing and please join the Performance Magazine Facebook Group for further updates. More Information
