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; conversations and programs with artists, curators and scholars through the Performa Institute; content for our Performa Magazine, publications, scholarly research, touring support for Performa artists such as Yvonne Rainer and expanding international partnerships in South Africa and Estonia via our unique Pavilion Without Walls program, as well as many other initiatives.
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 gives 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.
