Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival

July 14, 2013

The Gowanus Ballroom proudly presented an amazing array of performance art. Artists from all over the world descended on Brooklyn and transformed the Ballroom with zany and vaguely inappropriate interruptions, happily forced interactions, and transcendent performances that didn’t disappoint. An action packed night of theatrics overtook the Gowanus Ballroom as never before seen!

Two of our favorite performance artists, Matthew Silver and Esther Neff, joined forces to curate The Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival (BIPAF), a mass performance happening July 4–28 at venues throughout Brooklyn. Performance artists, curators, critics, gallery directors, cultural organizers, and many others worked together to perform a festival, framing the organization and the festival itself as a work of constructive institutional critique. We were pleased to support this groundbreaking series with an iteration at the Gowanus Ballroom.
