This November, Performa will take New York City by storm with new performances by over 100 of the most exciting artists working today, organized by a team of 50 international curators, and presented in collaboration with a consortium of over 40 arts organizations. Performa 11 will ignite New York City with energy and ideas, featuring events in all disciplines, including visual art, music, dance, poetry, radio, comedy, architecture, and food.
Along with Performa’s Commissions, the biennial will feature 6 Performa Premieres, over 20 Performa Projects, and special clusters of thematic programming, including a 52-hour Fluxus Weekend, events linked to the historic anchor of Russian Constructivism, Performa Radio at WNYC’s Greene Space, Performa HA! at a comedy club in Times Square, an adjacent film program Not Funny, and a series of performances about the unexpected theme of talking sculptures.
To program this year’s biennial, Performa drew upon the rich cultural landscape of New York City by partnering with its most innovative arts and cultural organizations. Together the Performa Consortium celebrates the intellectual and creative history of New York City.
And, HAD’s own Sara Campot is an intern at Performa and will be participating in the presentation of the Biennial!
