Conference: Sculpture & Performance

Henry Moore Institute & Tate Liverpool
24 – 26 March 2010

This three day conference will explore the complex relationship between sculpture and performance over the last century, acknowledging that what sculpture means today is partially indebted to the impact of so-called ‘performance art’. Speakers will focus on and expand upon the histories of inter-connections - constructive and destructive, divisive and codependent - and examine our expanded contemporary understandings of the two. The conference is international in scope and includes papers from artists, historians of art and performance and curators, as well as live performances, with the extension of dialogues through discussion. We are pleased to confirm the following speakers:
