Performance art fans, start planning your November. Performa 11, New York’s performance art biennial, today announced its full slate of events, which will run from Nov. 1 through Nov. 21. Tickets are now available for the epic array of events.
Festivities kick off on Nov. 1, with the debut performance of Danish duo Elmgreen & Dragset’s new work, Happy Days in the Art World, a theatrical adaptation of Sarah Thornton’s 2008 book Seven Days in the Art World. After that, the roster is jam packed with dozens of events from artists like Liz Magic Laser, Simon Fujiwara, MPA, Mai-Thu Perret, Liz Glynn, Wu Tsang and Shirin Neshat. Icelandic maestro Ragnar Kjartansson, who debuted his Performa work earlier this month, is also on tap.
The Observer has been looking forward to Performa 11 for quite some time and profiled its founder, the performance art scholar and curator RoseLee Goldberg, in our Fall Arts Preview. Read that piece here. The almost unbelievably epic calendar is available at Performa’s website.
