WHY SUPPORT OUR WORK:
Our supporters play a vital role in sustaining Performa’s ambitious mission and programs -- enabling us to support and nurture the artists whose work we commission and present.
In 2017, Performa presented an array of thrilling programs, including 10 new commissions and 25 new projects for the Performa 17 Biennial, as well as conversations and programs with artists, curators, and scholars through the Performa Institute. We also produced and developed content for our Performa Magazine, publications, and scholarly research, raised touring support for Performa artists such as Yvonne Rainer, expanded international partnerships in South Africa and Estonia via our unique Pavilion Without Walls program, and more!
With your help, we know we can make powerful new ideas by established as well as emerging artists available to you and the larger community and provide new platforms of expression for artists in 2018.
HOW TO SUPPORT OUR WORK:
Every contribution, no matter how small, is gratefully received. Our various levels of annual giving help sustain all of our activities and give you insider access to our programming and our process. Our Commissioning Council and Commissioning Fund provide support directly to the production of new work by artists from around the work and gives you access to artists and a front row seat.
