What is Performance Art? Australian Perspectives
Edited by Adam Gecszy and Mimi Kelly
Australia’s leading theorists and artists ask ‘What is Performance Art?’ This title is a rigorous reply from academic and lived experience with multiple points of entry, current and ongoing relevance. The archive and dialogue is modestly illustrated and includes contributions from Ian McLean, Jill Orr, Rex Butler, Mike Parr, Agatha Gothe-Snape and Bonita Ely to name a few in this comprehensive offering that crosses the first 50 years of performance art, broken into thematic chapters on histories, theories, interpretations and testimonials; collectively appreciating the past and imagining the future.
