Weird, it really does feel like Performa 11 just happened, but it turns out that was about a year and half ago. Performa 13, New York’s performance art biennial, will run this year from Nov. 1 through 24, and today the organization, which is helmed by scholar and curator RoseLee Goldberg, announced the artists it has commissioned to make new works especially for the festival.

The artists are:

Jake and Dinos Chapman
Subodh Gupta
Rosa Barba
Alexandre Singh
Marianne Vitale
Raqs Media Collective
Ryan McNamara
Paweł Althamer
Nicholas Hlobo
Tori Wrånes
Florian Hecker
Rashid Johnson

Pretty solid lineup, no?

More details on projects for the biennial will be released in coming weeks.
