Performa, the internationally acclaimed organization dedicated to live performance across disciplines, announces Performa 17—the seventh edition of the Performa Biennial, to take place November 1–19, 2017, at locations throughout New York City.

Performa 17 will present commissions and projects that examine immediate and critical concerns confronting our urban centers, the shifting political and cultural currents of our turbulent world today, and ultimately the role of the arts and of artists within our communities. This edition of the Biennial will focus on the sociopolitical context informing contemporary art today, and how best to engage audiences in significantly understanding and absorbing its aesthetics and intrinsic values.

Artists featured in Performa 17 include:

Yto Barrada (Morocco/France) / Brian Belott (USA) / Xavier Cha (USA)* / François Dallegret (France/Canada) with Dimitri Chamblas (France) and François Perrin (France/USA) / Teju Cole (Nigeria/USA) / Merike Estna (Estonia)* / Kendell Geers (South Africa)* / Nicholas Hlobo (South Africa) / Flo Kasearu (Estonia) / Richard Kennedy (USA) / William Kentridge (South Africa) / Barbara Kruger (USA) / Kemang Wa Lehulere (South Africa) / Kris Lemsalu (Estonia) with Kyp Malone (USA) / Julie Mehretu (Ethiopia/USA) and Jason Moran (USA) / Maria Metsalu (Estonia)* / Mohau Modisakeng (South Africa) / Zanele Muholi (South Africa) / Wangechi Mutu (Kenya) / Narcissister (USA)* / The Nest Collective (Kenya) / Kelly Nipper (USA) / Eiko Otake (Japan/USA)* / Tabita Rezaire (France/South Africa) / Jimmy Robert (France) / Bryony Roberts (USA) and Mabel O.

MELODRAMA, Act 1: London
24 June – 20 August 2016

MELODRAMA is an exhibition in two acts taking place between Luxembourg & Dayan’s London and New York gallery spaces. The show includes seven sculptures and a series of photographs that function as characters in a melodramatic play. Cloaked under commonplace appearances, the works perform dramatic attitudes, generate heightened emotions, and pervade pathos into the gallery space.

Act I: London. Pino Pascali’s ‘fake sculpture’ Coda di Delfino (1966) seems to have already escaped the gallery into the wall leaving nothing more than a trace of its tail. Maurizio Cattelan’s Untitled, taxidermied horse (2007) follows Pascali’s dolphin with a leap of its own, into the opposite wall of the gallery. The plot thickens with Fischli & Weiss’s inanimate black rubber Heart (1987), which lies still on a pedestal, hidden and over- looked like a character in one of Beckett’s plays; the show, however, must go on. Finally, a series of metic- ulous photographs by Franco Vimercati from his Ciclo Zuppiera (1983) generate, as the saying goes, ‘a storm in a tea cup’. These black and white photographs of a soup terrine transform a domestic object into a tragic and melancholic timeless diva.

In New York from 14 July – 17 September, the scene is set with Vincenzo Gemito’s 19th Century bronze bust placed in an unpredictable dialogue with a Jeff Koons cast bronze sculpture. At the same time, Urs Fischer faces a work by Richard Serra, each experimenting with weight and balance – a solid grounding facing precarious uncertainty. End of Act Two.

MELODRAMA was conceived in collaboration with curator Francesco Bonami with the aim to examine structures of exaggerated narratives and performativity in the medium of sculpture. Following the gallery’s recent survey of Alberto Giacometti’s pre-war sculptures in London, and a show of César’s works from the 1960’s in New York, MELODRAMA is the third exhibition in Luxembourg & Dayan’s season of sculptural investigations, a project that traces the blurry line that lies between materiality and imagination in the realm of sculpture.
