"Live Art in the UK: Shaping a Field”

This presentation will pose questions around the nature of Live Art as a cultural phenomenon within
the British art scene and the cultural specificity of its identity. It will set out to reflect on the process
of shaping a cultural sector and consider some of the forces, parameters, circumstances and events
that gave rise, directly or indirectly, to the conditions which were needed for Live Art to emerge as a
particular set of practices, distinct from visual arts or theatre. It will do this through presenting the
viewpoints of three "creative catalysts," which have played an important part in the emergence and
continuous development of Live Art. Those are: the Live Art Development Agency (London),
Compass Live Art (Leeds) and SPILL Festival of Performance (London and Ipswich).

The presentation will also introduce the edited collection Live Art in the UK, published in December
2019 by Bloomsbury.
