What is Live Art?
'Live Art' is an umbrella term which covers a broad range of works and artists that are variously hybrid, interdisciplinary and collaborative - fundamentally connected by their tendency to blur, subvert, transgress and critique traditional artform and discipline boundaries.
'...at least part of the definition of Live Art has to be its resistance to definition. Maybe it's called "live" precisely because it hasn't yet solidified into a category; it is a live process of change and challenge.'
Joshua Sofaer. 'What is Live Art?'*
'Not all works are pure or thoroughbred. Some are hybrids, symbols of creativity itself, of forcefully and purposively putting things together, of welding items previously disparate and unconnected into new and more complex unities.
Jerrold Levinson. 'Hybrid Art Forms.'
'Our time is a time of crossing barriers, for erasing old categories - for probing around. When two seemingly disparate elements are imaginatively poised, put in apposition in new and unique ways, startling discoveries often result.'
Marshall McLuhan. 'The Medium is the Massage.'
