Library Shelf Location 29.KAYE
Publication Date 2004
Description Site-Specific Art is the first major study of site-specific theatre and performance in North America and Europe since the 1950s. This volume is an astonishing addition to the debates around experimental performance and its documentation. The book is divided into individual analyses of the themes of space, materials, site, and frames. These are interspersed by specially commissioned documentary artwork from some of the worlds foremost practitioners and artists working today. This interweaving of critique and creativity offers a unique investigation into a major theme of contemporary work. Site Specific Art explores the relationship of architectural theory to an understanding of contemporary site related art and performance, and rigorously questions how such works can be documented.
