The history of live art is one of challenge to audiences, art traditions and cultural values. With elements of performance now part of the practice of many of today\'s best-known artists, and boundaries between visual art, theatre and live art more and more blurred, this collection is long overdue.\" \"Leading artists and thinkers assess the relevance of live art now, its impact within the visual arts and the broader cultural sphere. Hugo Glendinning\'s colour photographs of performance events are combined with numerous essays examining the political, philosophical and cultural resonances of the work of a diverse range of international live artists, both historical and contemporary. Live is an indispensable resource for all those with an interest in some of the most vibrant and contested issues in art today.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n

This first publication of an extensive selection of unabridged letters, alongside extracts from her notebooks, sheds new light on her life, her career and her artistic development.\" \"After training at the Slade and at Whistler\'s Academy in Paris, John settled in Paris in 1905, where she modelled for Rodin, subsequently becoming his lover. In 1915 she converted to Catholicism, withdrawing to the suburban village of Meudon, where she remained until her death. The letters she sent to friends and the notebooks in which she explored her artistic ideas and recorded visual impressions, often combining notes and sketches on the same page, were an important medium of expression for her. While never intended for publication, these writings, drawn from the artist\'s personal archives at the National Library of Wales, reveal the witty, passionate and intensely committed artistic intelligence that lay behind her work. Essential reading for all those interested in the life of this extraordinary artist and in the creative process itself. Book jacket.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
