The fifth volume in the acclaimed series by performance art historian RoseLee Goldberg, Performa 13 features projects from more than 120 of the leading artists working in performance today, in collaboration with more than 100 curators and arts institutions--works that broke down the boundaries between visual art, music, dance, poetry, fashion, architecture, graphic design and the culinary arts. Participating Performa 13 artists included Pawel Althamer, Malik Gaines, Martha Graham, Rashid Johnson, Joan Jonas, Christopher Knowles, Ryan McNamara, Alexandre Singh, C. Spencer Yeh and many others who premiered major new works.

This catalogue presents documentation of the festival in photographs, scripts and storyboards, along with contributions from curators, writers and the artists themselves, elaborating on the themes of the festival. Performa 13 stands not only as a beautiful document of a remarkable biennial, but also an invaluable reference guide for the performance art of our time.
