Panel Discussion

About the Program

The final LIVE 2003 panel at grunt gallery, Trauma and Endurance engaged panelists and the audience in a discussion of laden performance: durational works addressing heavy topics, and their effect on performers. Alastair MacLennan, Boris Nieslony, and Roi Vaara are all members of Black Market International, a loosely-organized performance art collective founded by Nieslony and others in 1985 with the aim of enacting an open exchange of ideas via the art of encounter. Moderated by Irene Loughlin.

October 19: Theories and Hybridities 
October 26: The Future of Performance Art
November 2: Collaboration
November 9: Process
November 16: Memory and Performance
