This resurgence in performative art continues out of a desire to question and test established exhibition and viewing habits, as well as the relative distinctions and distances between artist, artwork and audience.

The exhibition incorporates many live as well as documented performances. Visitors may experience tambourine players, women on horseback, groups of people testing their physical endurance and other unexpected encounters in the vicinity of the Gallery.

The fifth in the series of biennial Anne Landa Award exhibitions that began at the Art Gallery of NSW in 2004, this year’s edition is guest-curated by Charlotte Day, director, Monash University Museum of Art. All artists are eligible for the acquisitive award of $25,000, which sees the winning work enter the Gallery’s collection.
