Angela Viora


Academic publications

I publish internationally in peer-reviewed scholarly journal and collected editions. I write on performance and visual art, embodiment, audience reception, architecture and public art, migration, and education. I am currently working on my first monograph on the process of performance art (Routledge, 2024).
