With its maverick and punk ethos Performance Magazine embodied an immensely active community of artists, writers and publics that crossed disciplines throughout the late 70s, 80s and the start of the 90s.
Rob La Frenais (founding editor 1979 – 1987) has collaborated with Live Art Development Agency (LADA) to develop the project – Performance Magazine Online.
To celebrate the launch of Performance Magazine Online, LADA has created a set of limited edition posters featuring some of the magazine's most iconic front covers.
Coverstar: John Cage and Merce Cunningham (Issue 7, July/Aug 1980)
Poster details: 42.0 x 59.4cm, 170gsm matte finish
