Call For Papers - Exhibiting Performance Conference

Date: 1-3 March 2013
University of Westminster, 309 Regent Street, London, W1B 2UW
The Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) of the University of Westminster is convening Exhibiting Performance, a three-day event considering contemporary issues central to the display of performanceart. Following on from the Exhibiting Photography (2011) and Exhibiting Video (2012) International Conferences, this event will bring together notable artists, curators and writers, and provide a forum for a number of inter-related questions:
  • On what terms has the rise of Performance in contemporary arts taken place?
  • How do our museums and galleries disseminate and exhibit Performance?
  • How does the live act of Performance inform questions around the body and the audience?
  • How is Performance documented, archived and transacted?
  • How does technology contribute to the development of Performance?
The conference will be framed by the exhibition of work by artists and writers responding to a live performance by Philip Lee and Cally Trench Do you remember it – or weren’t you there? at London Gallery West, and Indeterminacy, a John Cage performance by Stewart Lee, Tania Chen and Steve Beresford.

There will be four half-day themes:
Curating: With Tate Modern opening the Tanks for performance events and Marina Abramovic’s major exhibition at New York’s MoMA in 2010, is performance art now mainstream, and on what terms? How do museums and galleries understand performance art?
Dissemination and Documentation:
How is performance documented? If you missed the performance is that it? What value does an art work in a different medium which gives a memory of a performance have?
The Body and Audiences:
What is the role of the body in performance today ? Why do so many performance artists perform naked ? Is the naked body a sign of authenticity or does the taboo distract from meaning ? How is the relationship between artist and audience different from or similar to other areas of art?
Performanceand Technology:
How does technology mediate performance ? What are the ontologies of networked, mediated and recorded performance practices ? How is videoperformance ‘live’? How do different technologies of camera (webcam, surveillance, etc) and screens (CRT, flat, projection, mobile phone, computer, etc) change our concept of performance?

Confirmed Participants:
Franko B, artist; Steve Beresford, Performer and Musician, University of Westminster; Mel Brimfield, artist; Dr Gavin Butt, Goldsmith College; Jon Cairns, Central St Martins; Dr Maria Chatzichristodoulou, curator and performer, University of Hull; Tania Chen, Musician; Dr Rob la Frenais, Curator The Arts Catalyst; Richard Layzell, artist, Middlesex University; Stewart Lee, writer and performer; Kira O’Reilly, artist, University of Hull; Dr Marquard Smith, University of Westminster; Margherita Sprio, University of Westminster; Gary Stevens, artist; Tracey Warr, writer and curator, Oxford Brookes University; Silvia Ziranek, artist.

Philip showing videos in CAA Exhibition - Tradition and Innovation

Hello!

I have three short videos in Tradition and Innovation at the CAA, celebrating 50 years of ceramics at Harrow, and opening on 20th April 2012. The show runs until 9th June 2012.

I will be at the private view on Thursday, 26th April 2012, 6 - 8 pm. I hope to see you there!

It would be great if you can also come to the Ceramics on Screen event on Monday, 28th May 2012, 6 - 8pm. At this event three films will be shown: a film by Jonathan Roe of a performance by Cally Trench and me, Body Body Clay Pane (October 2011); Brigit Connolly's film Host (2012); and films by Sylvain Thirouin. After everyone has seen the films, there will be an opportunity for discussion, chaired by the show's curator Tessa Peters.

I can recommend Ceramics in the Expanded Field on Thursday, 24th May at 4 pm and Tea with a Twist on Thursday, 7th June at 4 pm, so I hope you will be able to join us at CAA for these events too. The final Harrow Ceramics degree show will be at the Rag Factory on Brick Lane also on 7th June so you could go to both if you wish.

If you would like to come to Ceramics on Screen, or any of the CAA events, you will need to book a place by going to the CAA website - www.caa.org.uk.

I am looking forward to seeing you at CAA soon.

All best wishes,
Philip
