Performance Matters Archive

Artist Leisa Shelton takes you on a curated journey into the Live Art Development Agency’s (UK) Performance Matters Archive: 40 DVDs documenting public events for Performing Idea (2009–10) and Trashing Performance (2011–12), as part of Performance Matters.

Performance Matters brought together artists, academics and activists for a creative research project investigating the challenges contemporary performance presents to ideas of cultural value. The Archive is housed in 12 key international public archives and is generously made available to FOLA audiences through the Performing Arts Collection at Arts Centre Melbourne.

Come and chill out with this incredible resource in our super Supper Room social space.
