PERFORMA 07, the second visual art performance biennial, will take place this year from October 27 – November 20, 2007, in New York, with an expanded roster of consortium members, ten major new commissions, a lively and event driven educational program, and a focus on several new themes, including the relationship between the avant-garde dance and art worlds, with visual art projects that include choreographic precepts as material for art.

Michael Portnoy, Performance ArtistAn exciting four week program of performances, exhibitions, film, screenings, lectures and symposia, as well as PERFORMA TV and PERFORMA Radio, PERFORMA 07 has been organized in collaboration with 30 leading cultural institutions and their curators across the city to provide audiences with an overview of contemporary visual art performance.

With more than 90 participating artists, PERFORMA 07 will articulate a broad range of ideas and sensibilities across disciplines and media. Building on the important era of downtown New York of the Sixties and Seventies, when the area was a beacon for the newest developments in dance, film, music and visual arts, this second biennial re-imagines the past, with historical reconstructions such as Allan Kaprow’s legendary 18 Happenings in Six Parts, and also looks to the future, with its focus on new media and the infinite possibilities of generating new directions for the visual and performing arts of the new century.
