|One Year and Twenty Four Days of Fishing (2010-11), Katie Kehoe, a performance action for which I carried a fishing rod and wore rubber boots everywhere for over a year|
On Thursday, June 22 from 7-10pm I'm giving a Performance as Social Practice Workshop @VisArts!
After a brief introduction on performance art, we’ll explore in more detail how performance art translates into a social practice – focusing specifically on the relational stream of performance art.
We’ll discuss how the following considerations help to shape the social experience and influence the degree to which participants are invested in a piece: defining your audience, forms of participation, awareness of site, duration, presence and safety. We’ll also discuss the importance of documentation and consider different methods for documenting this art form.
Please wear comfortable clothes.
