Live Art on the page, the stage and the screen

In 2019, LADA is marking its 20th Anniversary and we are celebrating with a series of initiatives throughout the year including a publication, Agency, A Partial History of Live Art (edited by Theron Schmidt and co-published with Intellect Books); a series of 20 limited edition artworks Tiny Live Art (Development Agency) by Robert Daniels, both of which will be launched with an event on 6 March; a radio series on Live Art histories and futures for Resonance FM; a box set of 20 postcards representing key LADA projects and initiatives; and a series of free events here at our home at The Garrett Centre – Live Art on the page, the stage and the screen.

Live Art on the page, the stage and the screen will include As Seen on TV (April), an evening screening clips from TV programmes which inadvertently or otherwise feature artists better known from the worlds of performance art and Live Art; Readings from the Pulpit, an evening with artists’ readings of significant Live Art writings held in LADA’s Study Room (June); and Pop Goes Live Art – Icons on Icons (October), an evening in which some of LADA’s icons talk about their own icons from popular culture.
