“Growing out of the avant-garde and conceptual art of the 1960s, performance in visual art – performance art – now more-than-ever is being utilised by artists in communicating and developing their ideas across a number of mediums, platforms and places.
Performance based and inspired visual art stretches across the gamut of emotions, sensations and affect. From the intimate, to the gestural, the manic to the meditative, it can take place anywhere, anytime – lasting seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, and sometimes even years.
From the artist as performer, to the audience as performer, performance based and performance inspired contemporary visual art often challenges audiences to think in new and unconventional ways about art, self, culture and the world around them.
actingUP offers a diverse smorgasbord of performance treats; from the live to the documentary, the abject to the interactive, the critical to the comedic. Featuring 15 local, interstate and international individual and collaborative artists, the performance based and inspired art of actingUP draws upon such disciplines as sound art, theatre, painting, drawing, video, documentary, photography, and, critical & conceptual discourses.”
