Lawrence Lek, Raytracer, 2014. Installation.

Date: Monday, 16 March 2015
Time: 18:00 – 20:00
Venue: Chelsea College of Art Lecture Theatre

A panel discussion with RoseLee Goldberg (Founding director of Performa), Catherine Wood (Curator of Contemporary Art & Performance, Tate), Charles Aubin (Curator, Performa), Lois Keidan (Founding director of LADA) and Lawrence Lek (artist).

Chaired by: Jo Melvin (Senior lecturer of Fine Art Theory at Chelsea College of Art).

Performance is increasingly disseminated and consumed as secondary material in a world that is highly mediated by and interpreted through digital mediums. What are the differences, concerns and procedures that underscore our relationship with live art when the viewer is removed from the physical space of the performer? What is at stake in documenting and archiving the ephemeral moment of a live action?

During the discussion, Lawrence Lek, one of Delfina Foundation’s UK associate artists, will create a digital environment in the form of a virtual conversation.

This event is part of Performance as Process.
