Speaking at Acts Re-Acts 2, Claire Bishop, art historian and critic, calls for ‘rethinking the history of twentieth-century art through the lens of theatre rather than painting...’. Acts Re-Acts 3 aims to respond to her proposal by stimulating discourse between students and staff across UAL and other, like-minded institutions who are making, thinking or writing about performance in fine art and theatre.
The month-long laboratory will launch on 19 February with Performance Management, a day-long event at the ICA including a master-class with Wimbledon’s Practitioner in Residence Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, and panel discussion with Fine Art Programme Director Lois Rowe.
