Vol.3 Spring/Summer 2008 A quarterly publication of the
Artist Pension Trust
Letter from the Editor
Creativity isthe crucibleo transor-mation andpossibility.
And inherent to creativity is invention and risk—without which we would not have progress in science,industry or society. This issue of APT Insight takes alook at how artists have creatively approached per-formance to transform the viewer’s experience of theworld through interactive, real-time events. Globalaccess through the Worldwide Web has resulted in a
virtual explosion of innovation in the eld. The mergingof lm, video and performance with refashioned ideas
about painting and sculpture has given way to inter-disciplinary practices that might nearly characterize anew class of art. It is an exciting time.Festivals centered on performance are showing upeverywhere—PERFORMA in New York City, Khoj Art
Center’s rst performance event KhojLive08 in New
Delhi, Verbo Festival in São Paulo and Momentumin Brussels, to name only a few. APT has taken asupportive role by inviting a number of performanceartists from around the world to participate in the
APT program. Artist Shaun El C. Leonardo’s piece on
his performative intervention in Mexico’s
lucha libre
 wrestling world, Defne Ayas’s article “A New Kind ofPerformance in China?” and Beth Citron’s contribution
on the KhojLive08 festival point to how remarkably
international performance has become.The APT Web Gallery will launch in August with
our rst commission exhibition curated by Miki
Garcia, currently the director of the Santa BarbaraContemporary Arts Forum in California. Comprisedexclusively of work from the APT Collection, this
world-class exhibition is the rst of many that will
showcase APT artists and their works.
We have a viewpoint piece on Douglas Fogle’s “Life
on Mars”, the 55th Carnegie International, andan opinion page that invites artists and curator/facilitator Paco Barragán to share their thoughts onthe ubiquitous art fair.
Our next issue welcomes our APT Los Angeles
Director, Irene Tsatsos, as our guest Associate Editor,
who will bring a fresh perspective from the Pacic
Rim and around the world.Finally, watch for the new APT Blog, where leading
topics will begin owing in September.

The history o Chinese contemporary art isquite young, and the role o perormanceart within that history has rarely beeninvestigated in depth. Many Chinese artists who have come to be known as major guresin the art world today have created infuential works in the orm o perormances.
