PERFORMANCE NIGHT AT THE RCA
3 NOVEMBER 2011
Works selected by contemporary artists Nigel Rolfe, Franko B, Leah Capaldi and Jack Tan will be exhibited in a night of Performance Art at the Royal College of Art.
Following a week-long programme of intensive coaching and development, proposed work by students will be selected for an evening of performance at the Battersea campus of the Royal College of Art. As part of the college’s interdisciplinary initiative (AcrossRCA) students from design, animation, visual communication and fine art will be taken through a process of proposal, development, refinement and selection for Performance Night at the RCA.
The event makes apparent how other disciplines, as diverse as industrial design engineering or textiles, can enter, enrich and inform performance art. Questions are raised about how performance consists as a field of enquiry, its development, and the permeability of its boundaries.
The Performance Night exhibition takes place on 3 November 2011, 6.30pm to 10pm.
Royal College of Art, 15-25 Howie Street, Battersea, London SW11 4AS
