We’re very pleased to announce that a new limited edition print of a collaboration between Manuel Vason and Hugo Glendinning, created as part of Manuel’s project Double Exposures, is starting a series of activities to mark the 15th anniversary of the Live Art Development Agency in 2014. The anniversary activities of LADA will provide an opportunity to reflect on the seismic shifts in Live Art practices and discourses that have taken place since 1999 through the lens of the Agency and its work. Look out for special events, online activities, and publications with some of your favourite artists.
The image collaboration between Hugo and Manuel will feature as the front cover of the homonymous forthcoming book (summer 2014; co-published by LADA and Intellect) and is is the first image from Double Exposures to be revealed. The book will present an extensive body of new collaborations between Vason and some of the most visually arresting artists working in performance across the UK.
Manuel Vason and Hugo Glendinning are two of the world’s leading photographers of Live Art and related performance practices. Manuel Vason’s Double Exposures sets out new ways of bridging performance and photography, with Manuel’s own body incorporated within many of the images. The limited edition Double Exposures print depicts Manuel Vason and Hugo Glendinning in front and behind the camera at the same time.
Print specifications: Edition of fifteen, each accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, signed and numbered by the artists. Dimensions: * print: 1016 mm by 730.5 mm (including image and surrounding white border) * image: 1000 mm by 714.3 mm Mat archival paper
Double Exposures is supported by Arts Council England.
