16 Feb - 12 March 1995
25 YEARS OF PERFORMANCE ART IN AUSTRALIA
This exhibition was curated and toured by the Ivan Dougherty Gallery and represented a (partial) history of performance practice in Australia, a practice that the EAF in the seventies had an important role in, as was articulated by Noel Sheridan in his catalogue essay. The works were represented through various forms of documentation - slides, photographs, sound recordings and videos, as well as through props from the performances, and covered a wide range of the artists involved. As part of the exhibition season, performances were presented. On the opening night Michele Luke performed "Awkward Glories or the Penny Dreadful of an Arcanum Hagiography" in collaboration with Steve Matters and the Burning Giraffes, and later, a work by Joy Hardman and "Which Side Do You Dress?" by Linda Sproul were performed by the artists.
