The biennial Anne Landa Award was established in 2004 to honour a former Art Gallery of NSW trustee and enthusiastic supporter of the arts. This 2013 exhibition (the fifth) explored performance as a force in contemporary art through the nexus of new technologies. Guest curated by Charlotte Day, Director of Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) in Melbourne, it presented new works by Lauren Brincat, Alicia Frankovich, Laresa Kosloff, Angelica Mesiti, Kate Mitchell, James Newitt and Christian Thompson that test physical and psychological boundaries through challenging feats, exercises in endurance, repetition and risk-taking.
