P4 (pilot) is a Live Art program developed by Performance Space and Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) in partnership with CIA studios. The pilot program presents four simple creative parameters for artist and audience engagement with forms of live art practice: Practice, Publish, Participate and Perform. Performance Space and PICA will work together to facilitate six new works by Australian artists, and a project by British collaborative duo, FrenchMottershead to take place in Sydney and Perth from between October – November 2010.
The program addresses the ephemeral, experiential, socially engaged and often unquantifiable practices of live art makers in Australia and is committed to furthering the understanding and recognition of Live Art as an important and interdisciplinary layer of contemporary arts practice. The program is intended to be administratively light, empowering the artists to work within their own DIY methodologies to create new works with variety of public and non-public outcomes.
P4 (pilot) has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body. P4 (pilot) is presented with the support of British Council.
