Description


The Live Art Almanac Volume 4 is a collection of ‘found’ writings about and around Live Art that were

originally published, shared, sent, spread and read between January 2012 and December 2014. Selected through recommendations and an open call for submissions, Volume 4 reflects the dynamic, international contexts that Live Art and radical performancebased practices occupy.

Live Art is experiencing a huge surge in interest with major museums embracing this disparate area of

practice, formerly cult artists becoming household names, and everyone from Shia LaBeouf, Lady Gaga and Jay Z trying to get in on the action.

Reflecting the diversity of approaches and key developments from the last few years, Volume 4 is grouped into seven loosely themed sections: Locating Performance; Performance Under Attack; Sp+eaking Up/Speaking Out; Show Me the Money; High Art in Low Places; Reviews; and Dearly Departed.

This volume includes writings by, and about: Ai Weiwei, Pussy Riot, Tim Etchells, Karen Finley, Vaginal Davis, Ann Magnuson, Shaheen Merali, Jennifer Doyle, Marilyn Arsem, Guy Brett, Nigel Charnock, Claire Bishop, Bryony Kimmings, Matthew Barney, Coco Fusco, Stuart Hall, Miley Cyrus, Petr Pavlensky, Reverend Billy, Ron Athey, Mike Kelley, Oreet Ashery, CHRISTEENE, Marcia Farquhar, Morgan Quaintance, Adrian Howells, Amelia Abraham, Brian Boucher, Rose Finn-Kelcey, Mat Fraser, José Esteban Muñoz, Kembra Pfahler, Hennessy Youngman, Joan Rivers, Mykki Blanco, Monica Ross, Wu Tsang, boychild, Wendy Houstoun, the vacuum cleaner and many more.

The Live Art Almanac Volume 4 is published by Live Art Development Agency and Oberon Books.
