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.
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.
