With its roots in early 20th century avant-garde movements, performance art continues to intersect with other mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography, and video. Intended either for live audiences or as private, finite actions, performance art differs from theatre in that artists are not "acting" but rather embodying. It can be live or recorded, improvisational or composed ahead of time.
Rooted in the fluidity of moving images, video art is likewise time-based. Coming of age during the 1960s, video art grants artists freedom and flexibility to present their work outside of the gallery in a variety of formats with ease and accessibility.
