What Jay Z served up at Pace Gallery is an appetizer compared to the performance art feast that awaits at Peforma 13. Organized by the non-profit arts organization founded by art historian and author RoseLee Goldberg, the biennial has been celebrating both new and old work since 2005. Over the next three weeks, more than 40 galleries, museums, and performance spaces host a number of exciting, cutting-edge productions by acclaimed international artists such as Clifford Owens, Rashid Johnson, Jill Magid, Joan Jonas, Ryan McNamara, Marianne Vitale, and Gabriel Lester. Using surrealism as a departure point, this year's festivities again include a fabulous assortment of commissions and premieres. In the mix you'll find Subodh Gupta's Celebration, a series of intimate dinners cooked by the artist; Alexandre Singh's the Humans, a play performed at BAM modeled on the comedies of the poet Aristophanes; and Shana Lutker's The Nose, the Cane and the Broken Left Arm, a piece based on a fistfight that took place in Paris among members of the Surrealist group. For those who want schooling, head over to Performa Hub, where artists are holding master classes, or hit up the Performa After Hours to mingle and possibly take part in an impromptu (alcohol-induced) performance.
