Lecture: Performance in public institutions

Stephanie Rosenthal, chief curator, Hayward Gallery

Notwithstanding its longer history including dada, situationism and the ritualised events of the plural 1970s, performance has recently reasserted its place and importance in art. Once occasional, and often sequestered to external places, performance has now entered the institution, sometimes in all-encompassing events. The presence of live art inside institutions, with its unique process of production, presentation and distribution, raises new issues and challenges for the art museum.

Drawing on her wealth of experience within the global art world, Stephanie Rosenthal explores the presentation of performance art in public institutions, focusing on new performative strategies and formats, as well as the complementary role of the digital archive.
