Podcast: How can performance art be collected, preserved, displayed and sold?

Published 10 July 2017

Catch up on our panel event with this recording of artists Brian Catling RA and Pablo Bronstein in discussion with Tate Senior Curator Catherine Wood and Dr Jen Harvie.

How can artists, curators and collectors ensure the place of performance art in the marketplace and history of art?
