Event description

Description

‘Introductions …’ is a new series of talks and events curated by frieze associate editor Paul Clinton, inviting international experts to provide accessible, jargon-free primers to key artworks, ideas and movements in contemporary art and culture.

As the November/December issue of frieze magazine profiles Anne Imhof on the occasion of a major new live work at Berlin’s Hamburger Bahnhof, this session of the ‘Introductions’ series looks at performance art. Catherine Wood, Senior Curator International Art (Performance) at Tate Modern, will discuss the emergence of performance art in the 1970s through to today. She will trace the shifting status of performance from medium to attitude and along the way highlight key topics such as individual performance, collectivity and performance as art object.

Other events in the series included:

Introduction to Feminist Art by Helena Rickett

Introduction to Curating by Gilda Williams
