Operations In Mixed Reality

The Drama and Performance Practice as Research Group invite you to this lecture presentation by Mark Jeffery and Judd Morrissey 

Studio 3/4, Borough Road Building
London South Bank University 
103 Borough Road, SE1 0AA

Monday 12 January, 1:30-3pm

Mark Jeffery and Judd Morrissey are a collaboration merging live art and digital literary practices. The work, which is visual, textual and choreographic, evolves through context-specific research and practice and always considers the constraints of a given venue or occasion. Site- responsive considerations include the performance/exhibition space as well as the local community and [online] textual activity happening within the locale. A given piece is a body of material that may have no singular fixed form but is alternately presented as internet art, durational live installation, an ongoing activity, or a performance of fixed length.

Jeffery and Morrissey have presented throughout the US, UK, and Europe with recent venues including, Inspace Gallery (Edinburgh), Performing House (York), Sullivan Galleries (Chicago), Defibrillator Gallery (Chicago), Hyde Park Salon Series (Chicago), Chicago Cultural Center, Bergen Bibliotek (Norway), Le Cube (Paris), Anatomical Theatre and Museum (London), Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, National Museum of Health and Medicine (Chicago) and ZERO1, San Jose and Eyebeam NYC. They are artists in residence at the National Museum of Health and Medicine Chicago. Both artists were members of the Chicago-based international performance collective Goat Island, Jeffery as a performer and collaborator for 13 years, and Morrissey as an external collaborator on writing and digital art projects for 5.

This event is free and open to all but places are limited. If you would like to come, please email Dr Elena Marchevska
