Why I Make Live Art

Jess Barbagallo curated a night of current explanations by contemporary performance makers around the siren call of “liveness” in art practice at The Invisible Dog. The diverse panel included poet-playwrights, actors moving between the film and stage, conceptual artists and others who situate their collective work under the auspices of multiple genres. Artists presented prepared statements and manifestoes in response to the evening followed by a moderated conversation.
