This program has been organized in conjunction with Le Lieu’s conference, Rencontre internationale et colloque interactif sur l’art actuel (1958-1998), taking place Tuesday October 20 to Sunday October 25 in Quebec City. In order to broaden the discussion about performance chronologies that will be taking place at this symposium, we are inviting several of the participants to come to Toronto to present talks on their respective areas of experience and expertise. Working mainly as curators, producers and writers in the fields of performance and contemporary art, these speakers will provides insights into what trends are developing in terms of performance art in other parts of the world.
