Abstract

Performance Art in Ireland offers the first extensive
collection of histories of live performance art in an
Irish context, focusing on work produced since
the 1970s. Although the artists under discussion
foreground the engagement of small commu ni ties
within specific localities, many draw on trans -
national creative exchange and deal with globally
significant issues – for example Mary Duffy and
Alanna O’Kelly who, in Limerick and Belfast res -
pectively, have used art to challenge nuclear arms.
