Support Performa

Performa is powered by the support of individuals. From the very first iteration of the Performa biennial in 2005 up until now, patrons have made the groundbreaking and field-changing art possible through their donations small and large.

Help support Performa's many tiers of innovation and activity with a gift this holiday season. This includes the development of exciting new commissions, the ongoing adventurous program of debate and discussions at the Performa Institute, as well the unique online Performa magazine that covers a broad range of performance and new media from around the world. 

Whether $5, $50 or $5,000, your contribution directly supports contemporary artists in creating new work for Performa. For more information, contact Luisa Gui at or 212 366 5700.

Make a 100% tax-deductible contribution in any amount.
