Following a major 2014 conference on curating performance at Université du Québec à Montréal, Berghahn Books has published an exciting new book anthology, edited by Dena Davida, Marc Pronovost, Véronique Hudon, and Jane Gabriels. Curating Live Arts brings together innovative essays from international theorist-practitioners to pose vital questions, propose future visions, and survey the landscape of this rapidly evolving discipline. Join us for a conversation with the book’s editors and selected contributors, followed by a reception to celebrate the publication.
