AboutWimbledon College of Art invites you to engage in the daylong festival âWhat Does Performance Art Want?' This festival will endeavour to investigate what performance artists want and need from the cultural institutions that make up the London art scene. More specifically, how does the art school nurture, support and inform emerging performance and live art practitioners?
Starting from 11am and running until 5.00pm artists from around London will perform in various spaces across the Wimbledon campus.
Between 1-2pm a public long table discussion will be held to give both visitors, students and artists a forum in which to discuss what performance and live art practitioners need in order to advance their own practice. This discussion will be moderated by graduating Wimbledon student George William Price and artist Kate Mahony.
To close what is sure to be an exciting day of experimental performance we will be screening Vito Acconci's 'Command Performance' at 5.30pm (screening approximately 60 minutes).
This event is free and open to the public. Please note that the screening may well be oversubscribed and so we advise you to arrive early to avoid disappointment.
