Slideshow: One Night Stand Performances

Last week's One Night Stand event was the last in a series of three evenings throughout the autumn that explored the grey areas between visual art and other contemporary practices: moving image, literature and performance.

One Night Stand: Performance featured visual artists and writers who use performance in their work as well as live art and theatre makers. Though their approaches differed, contributors shared overlapping interests, for example in the format of the lecture and the act of revisiting.

The acts flowed from one to the other, with each taking place in a different area of the gallery, from the Performance Re-enactment Society's mash-up of Yoko Ono's ‘Instructions for paintings’ to look at the work of Ivan Seal, to Sarah Dobai's faux photography studio.
