Courtesy of the artist Keith Gallasch recently reviewed the exhibition of Performance Now at QUT Art Museum in Brisbane, Australia for Real Time Arts Magazine. The article gives in-depth descriptions of specific artworks in the show, as well placing the exhibition within the larger context and history of contemporary performance art. About Performance Now, Gallasch says:
“No breezing through this show. Youll need hours, maybe days. In Performance Now, a collection of significant works will be simultaneously exhibited on screen in the museum.
