Following on from A Short History of Performance Art join us for a seminar that explores the challenges of collecting an art form which by its very nature is ephemeral and resists commodification. An expert panel, including Teresa Calonje (co-founder of ‘Collecting Live Art’) and performance artist Hayley Newman, will debate the issues, asking how and why it should be collected.

Collecting Performance Art is presented as part of Between – a programme of newly commissioned performance works curated by Louise Adkins, associate curator The International 3, in partnership with MIRIAD and Cornerhouse.

This event is part of a series of events programmed by the Contemporary Art Society in the North East. Membership cost is £25 for New Members. This is the 3rd year of the pilot programme and we are currently offering programming until July 2012.

If you are not yet a member and would like to join, or to receive further information about the organisation and its activities, please contact Mark Doyle at or call 07891 880 498.
