Cura/genda x Young Women In The Arts celebrate artist Kelly Nipper, who received a commission from Performa. The artist will discuss her latest work.
Performa is a prestigious performance art Biennale in New York.
Performa 17’s team of curators and producers will present commissions and projects around curatorial research themes focused on a cross cultural dialogue between artists working in several African cities, the legacy of Dada, and the intersection of architecture and performance, that represent timely opportunities to work with a diverse range of global contemporary artists. The resulting commissions and scholarship examine immediate and critical concerns confronting our urban centers, the shifting political and cultural currents of our turbulent world today, and ultimately the role of the arts and of artists in supporting afflicted communities. This edition of the Biennial will focus on the sociopolitical context informing contemporary art today, and how best to engage audiences in significantly understanding and absorbing its aesthetics and intrinsic values. Additional commissions, projects and details will be announced in the coming months.
Performa 17, the seventh edition of the Performa Biennial, will take place November 1–19, 2017, at locations throughout New York City.
On sale dates for tickets to be announced in September 2017.
Young Women In The Arts aims to bring together like-minded individuals in the arts. We hope to foster a community that collaborates and works together to influence the global art world.
