Hugh Dichmont (Tether / a-n)
Lawrence Bradby (Townley and Bradby)
Ana Benlloch (a.a.s)
Lois Keidan (Live Art Development Agency)

Chaired by:
Laura Eldret (Collecting Live Art)

The debate asks:

‘Live art asks us what it means to be here, now’*
When live art is presented in a public environment to an unsuspecting audience, does it alienate or empower the people and places it seeks to engage?
* Live Art UK Vision Paper

The Lincoln Art Programme launches a new series of events and commissions throughout October and November 2009 with ART-JACKING, a debate that focuses on the role of live art in public environments. Joined by a selection of speakers who are active in the field of live art, the debate will explore the past, present and future role of live art in the public realm. The speakers are to present arguments in favour of empowerment or alienation before the debate is opened up to the floor, as the Lincoln Art Programme initiates its new programme of live art activity in the city.

The event is free but booking is advised.
