Performa is a performance art biennale founded in 2004 by art historian RoseLee Goldberg and sponsored by the organization of the same name. Held every other year since 2005, the biennale has a range of innovative programs that break down the boundaries between visual art, music, dance, poetry, fashion, architecture, etc. Central among these is the commissions program to support visual artists in creating performance works, which includes among it past participants the musician Arto Lindsay, choreographer and video artist Yvonne Rainer, the painter Wangechi Mutu and artist Mike Kelley. Some of the works from this program have gone on to be shown around the world after premiering at Performa.
