WHAT IS LIVE ART MAGAZINE?
Live Art Magazine is a one-night-only live performance event. Recording, filming and photography are not allowed, as the event strives to create a unique experience that is ephemeral (and protects works-in-progress from documentation). Live Art happens once for the people in the room. The only record is left by our drawing team
Watch and listen as local and regional artists, musicians, writers, dancers, risk-takers and other creatives reveal unseen new work and works-in-progress. The evening unfolds within the structure of a magazine. Each issue engages the audience with a selection of readings (poetry, fiction, essay), performances (music, dance, theater), photography, and film. A series of short pieces begin the evening, and set a rolling pace. Longer features follow and dig deeper. The final works bring closure and prep us to hit local establishments with fellow art community members.
WHO IS LIVE ART MAGAZINE?
Without the talented group of people working behind the scenes, Live Art Magazine would cease to exist.
