RoseLee Goldberg is Director of Performa, a multi-disciplinary arts organization for the research, development and presentation of 21st-century visual art performance.Among her other books are Performance: Live Art Since the 60s and Laurie Anderson, both published by Thames & Hudson.
'RoseLee Goldberg's writings on Performance as an art and activity have been THE necessary texts that inform our discovery and understanding of this complexly critical yet seductively available cultural practice. Performance Now continues to follow this dynamic live art into the 21st century with an expansiveness and rigor that has made Goldberg's writings an indispensable chronicling of both art and its time' - Barbara Kruger
