Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

A review of M21

The book contains a wealth of documentation of live art practices by UK-based practitioners, as well as two DVDs, one of live art events, one of video work, wonderful resources for the classroom.

"Live Art" as a term is not very familiar in the US: this work emerges out of performance art, sculptural practice, and visual art discourses, but has a stronger research and theory component than much "old school" performance art. The Live Art Development Agency in London holds a wide variety of material created under this label, and Access All Areas collates much of it, making the collection an invaluable resource of cultural practice.
