RoseLee Goldberg

Founder and director of New York-based performance biennial Performa

Reputation is everything in New York, and while Goldberg’s live-art biennial festival has garnered praise for its programming, the success of the performance art genre it has championed has thrown up its own PR problems. Away from the politics, Francesco Vezzoli, Laura Lima, Ryan Gander and Heather Phillipson are among the artists included in November’s edition, and in September Goldberg announced programming beyond the Big Apple: a tour through French and Belgian venues for Yvonne Rainer’s The Concept of Dust, or How do you look when there’s nothing left to move? (2015).
