About the event

What is the state of performance in art criticism today? Performance Art Journal has provided a history of performance art in print since its founding in 1976 and continues to be the leading voice for the field and the public. How does today’s critical writing assess current debates in performance art, and who are the new voices and venues for this writing? Join critics and curators Bonnie Marranca (editor, PAJ: A Journal of Performance and Art), Claire MacDonald (University of the Arts London/Central St. Martins); Thom Donovan (writer and critic) and others for a panel discussion on the specific characteristics of critical writing about performance art and its recent coalescence into a form of public discourse.
