TAPS: Improvisations with Paul Burwell

Notes

Box archive of Anne Bean's Legacy Project TAPS: Improvisations with Paul Burwell co-curated by Robin Klassnik and Richard WilsonOver the course of three days TAPS combined film, installation and performance, portraying layers of interpretation from more than 80 invited collaborators, in response to Paul Burwell's poem ‘Adventures in the House of Memory'. Paul Burwell was infamous for his exuberant fusions of fine-art installation, percussion and explosive performance. He was a staunch advocate of, and passionate participant in, all forms of experimental art. TAPS: Improvisa- tions with Paul Burwell, realised by Anne Bean, Robin Klassnik and Richard Wilson embodies his prolific practice. TAPS was supported by a Legacy: Thinker in Residence Award to Anne Bean. Legacy is a collaboration between the Live Art Development Agency and Tate Research, financially assisted by Arts Council England and the Live Art Development Agency. Legacy acknowledges the outstanding bodies of work of two artists who have influenced the development of the Live Art field by supporting them to think about the legacies of performance in art historical contexts and examine the processes and challenges of archiving live work.
