The event is also the first in a series of initiatives celebrating LADA’s 20th anniversary in 2019.
The event will include presentations by Theron Schmidt, Robert Daniels and other artists and writers who have contributed to these anniversary projects including Tim Etchells, Franko B, Oreet Ashery, Anne Bean and Alan Read.
AGENCY looks back at the last 20 years of Live Art through the lens of LADA. Including almost 50 contributing artists and scholars, this collection of conversations, provocations and images takes the twentieth anniversary of the LADA’s founding as an opportunity to consider not only what Live Art has been against, but also what it has been for. Through the work of this particular ‘Agency’, the book explores the idea of agency more generally: how Live Art has enabled the possibility for new kinds of thoughts, actions and alliances for diverse individuals and groups.
In addition, Robert Daniels has created the special edition Tiny Live Art (Development Agency) - 20 works for 20 years: 20 miniature sculptures of seminal performance works, which were nominated by artists and curators. Part re-enactment, part archive, part hobby, Tiny Live Art embraces and embodies theories and practices of performance documentation, re-enactment and the making and sharing of memory, and draws from aspects of street art, installation and hobbyist pursuits like model railway and airfix kit building.
