Live Art is performance that occurs at the moment of encounter between artists, the art, participants, and audiences. It can be found in a room, street, paddock, a netball court, rural hall, dam, car, call centre, hotel, creek, gallery, library, garden, or on a bed, beach, or back track ...
It is equal parts observing, curating, creating, translating and participating. It’s art that’s alive, active and ephemeral. Live Art crosses art form boundaries and asks: ‘who’s it with and why?’
- The project clearly investigates live arts conventions
- The project clearly states its relationship with the region – why the artists want or need to locate their research here.
