CBP News: In Support of Beloved Country | Performa Gala

We’re looking forward to Performa’s Beloved CountryA tribute to the rich history and power of the visual arts and performance in South Africa. Honoring Okwui Enwezor with a Performa Gala Commission, Over The Rainbow by Athi-Patra Ruga, The night also includes an appearance by For Freedoms, the first artist-run super PAC.

Since 2004, Performa has been a leader in commissioning artists who together shape the next chapter of the multi-century legacy of visual artists working in live performance. Serving as an incubator for artists’ projects, Performa encourages new directions for live performance while paying homage to the form’s history and making way for its future.

Create Blueprint is excited to be working with Performa on a project for their upcoming Biennial, to be announced in 2017.
