Performa biennial

DEFINITION

An idea of Rose Lee Goldberg, art historian and curator, it is a New York City event for Performance Art. The beginning was in 2005 with Performa 05, which was succeeded by Performa 07 with 67 events around the four borroughs of the city. Involved were museums, theaters, galleries, office buildings and universities. "The center of gravity was between performer and individual audience members who could avail themselves of experiences ranging from haircuts by children in Chinatown" to personal conversations with artists to private photo sessions. Among the 'performance' artists were Sanford Biggers, Kelly Nipper, Adam Pendleton, Darren O'Donnell and Dave McKenzie.
