Exhibitions

LADA STUDY ROOM // BIBLIOTHEQUE

Dates: 25 Apr - 28 Apr

Show Time: 11am - 7pm

Tickets: €0.00

A curated selection of work from the Live Art Development Agency (LADA)’s Study Room has toured to Live Collision each year, representing topics such as feminism, sexuality, disability and race in relation to Live Art practices. This year we will host a selection of 12 short reads from LADA’s Study Room with a focus on issues of race, migration and displacement.

The Live Art Development Agency’s Study Room is one of the most (if not *the* most) important archives in the UK on experimental theatre, performance and Live Art. It has one of the best specialist book collections on these subjects and a fantastic array of DVDs stretching back over 40 years of artists’ innovative practices. It is a major and indispensable resource for artists, scholars, students and journalists and furnishes a vital space for research, considered curatorial decisions, writing and contemplation. – Adrian Heathfield, Professor of Performance and Visual Culture Roehampton University, London

Repeal the 8th: Maser's Mural Reinstalled at Project Arts Centre

Since it was founded in 1966, Project Arts Centre has always placed the vision and freedom of expression of the artist at the centre of our work. We believe that all art is, in some way or other, indelibly political because it relates to the workings of the society from which it emerges.

According to The Planning & Development Regulations 2001, Schedule 2, Part 2, Exempted Developments, Class 14, the mural is not subject to planning permission in the…
