Bec Dean: Performance Art in Australia

There is so much more to contemporary art than painting, sculpture and photography. Over the last 30 years, performance art and interdisciplinary art have emerged from a niche and into major galleries. But what does it all mean? What is performance art anyway?

With ground-breaking international performance artist Marina Abramovich’s major retrospective shows with Kaldor Projects in Sydney and at MONA in Tasmania in July, there is no better time to discover Australian performance art which is expanding and evolving into new territories of creativity and risk taking.

Bec Dean will unravel the concept of performance art and highlight some key interdisciplinary performance-based projects that have taken place in Australia over the past few years.
