Live and Digital Art Resources now online
AHDS Performing Arts has acquired four new collections of live and performance art material, including the world-class Live Art Archive and Digital Performance Archive.
These seminal research resources provide access to a wealth of information on live art, performance art, installations, physical and dance-based theatre, multi-media work, and bio-art events that have taken place in the United Kingdom and sometimes beyond.
The collections, freely available and searchable online, give details of artistic events that have included figures such as Joseph Beuys, Yoko Ono, Damien Hirst and Gilbert and George.
These resources have been developed by Performing Arts researchers Professor Barry Smith (previously Nottingham Trent University, now University of Bristol) and Professor Steve Dixon (previously University of Salford, now Brunel University) as well as world-famous performance artist STELARC.
Other AHDS Performing Arts resources are also freely available online rom http://performingarts.ahds.ac.uk/collections/
