Lecture: An Introduction to Performance Art in Four Parts—Fluxus and the Art of Participation

From the grotesque to the political, the mundane to the playful, performance art has evolved to encompass a wide range of creative approaches and attitudes. This four-part lecture series invites you to consider key moments in the history of performance art and explore the work of artists who are continuing to blur boundaries and redefine artistic practice. This series coincides with the launch of Iterations, an initiative presenting newly commissioned works by a range of artists over the next three years.


In the second lecture of the series, assistant curator Jordan Carter highlights key players and moments of this highly influential group known as Fluxus that blurred the boundaries between artistic media, performer and audience, artwork and event.
