Putting on a show : the theatricality of sport

By Mark W. Pennings


This exhibition catalogue essay discusses the work of artists in the Basil Sellars Art prize at the Ian Potter Gallery in Melbourne. It considers sport's theatre within parameters such as theatre itself; rules and recursive elements; creases in the cultural fold; transformances; and the performers themselves. The artists' articulation of these themes is discussed in detail
