This account about The Birth of Seven Documented Performances—a series of planned live artworks by Yan Xing—features an assemblage of texts by five authors: a curator (Andy Campbell), a critic (Meiling Cheng), three performers (Campbell, Cheng, and Hendrik Folkerts), an audience member (Amelia Jones), and the artist (Yan Xing). The first installment of Yan’s performance series took place via Zoom in the guise of a quasi-improvised panel discussion, which was billed as part of Live Artists Live III: Despair/Repair (2020), a festival cocurated by Andy Campbell and Patty Chang at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles.
