PERFORMANCE ON SCREEN     

PERFORMANCE ON SCREEN A STUDY DAY EXPLORING CURATION, COLLECTIONS AND ARCHIVE OF PERFORMANCE AND THE MOVING IMAGE

WEDNESDAY 13 FEBRUARY 2008 WATERSHED, BRISTOL

A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN PICTURE THIS, CAPTURE AND WATERSHED


Framework

This study day is intended to inspire its delegates to present, make or go and see performance on screen works. It will focus on curation, collections and archive of dance/visual art/live art and moving image projects.

The morning will comprise a series of illustrated presentations designed to explore histories and strategies of presenting performance on screen works in the cinema, the gallery, site-specific projects, museums and collections. The speakers all share an interest in performance on screen works, yet come from a range of different backgrounds and disciplines.

In the afternoon there will be an opportunity for off-site guided visits either to Bristol University’s Live Art Archives or to From One Thing to Another by John Wood and Paul Harrison. The visits will be followed by either a chaired series of case studies of curatorial approaches to cross-disciplinary work or an artists mentoring opportunity to receive guidance on presenting work.
