I’m hoping this New York-based performance biennial will provide an antidote to the recent plague of endless art fairs. It only took five years of being constantly presented with assemblage and collage, but I think I’m finally getting tired of the stuff. Exactly what Performa will offer remains a bit of a mystery. So far, we only have curator Roselee Goldberg’s list of commissioned artists, but the event will at least keep us busy for the month of November. Participating artists include: Jake and Dinos Chapman, Subodh Gupta, Rosa Barba, Alexandre Singh, Marianne Vitale, Raqs Media Collective, Ryan McNamara, Paweł Althamer, Nicholas Hlobo, Tori Wrånes, Florian Hecker, Rashid Johnson. Starts November 1. Johnson.
