Paweł Althamer Opening: Biba Performa

Biba of Williamsburg, 110 Kent Ave

Help kick off Paweł Althamer's month-long performance project at Biba of Williamsburg with a special celebration barbecue with food cooked by Polish chef Szymon Althamer. Meet the artists and their collaborators, the community, and the Performa team, and learn more about Biba Performa and how to participate.

For his first large-scale public work for New York City, Polish artist Pawel Althamer is staging events at this local bar and restaurant in Brooklyn, situated on the East River, from which one can see the shimmering Manhattan skyline from a distance.
