Artist Leisa Shelton takes you on a curated journey into the Live Art Development Agency’s (UK) Performance Matters Archive: 40 DVDs documenting public events for Performing Idea (2009-10) and Trashing Performance (2011-12), as part of Performance Matters.
Performance Matters brought together artists, academics and activists for a creative research project investigating the challenges contemporary performance presents to ideas of cultural value. Come and chill out with this incredible resource in our Supper Room social space.
