Somewhere between visual art, theatre, music, and dance, works of performance art explore the body, objects, space and time. Rather than conveying a story or plot, performance artists aim to sculpt an experience that can happen anywhere and for any length of time.

In June 2014, we supported three innovative, risk-taking British artists at the Rapid Pulse Festival, an international performance art festival in Chicago. The artists, Kira O'Reilly, Alastair MacLennan, and Manuel Vason, performed provocative pieces at the Defibrillator Gallery in Chicago.
