ATHI-PATRA RUGA IN NEW YORK FOR PERFORMA 11

I so wish i could be in NY next weekend to see Athi represent in his new performance, 'Ilulwane'. I've listened to him conceptualize and speak about it for months, and i've also seen lots of work go into it and i've heard the soundtrack that he and Spoek Mathambo put together for the performance. So I know it's gonna be an amazing and groundbreaking piece. Alas, I will not be in NY to see Athi and the 27 synchronized swimmers perform this live, so excuse me if i'm a little sad. But if you are in New York on the 19th and 20th, best you make your way there. The performance is part of the PERFORMA visual art performance biennial where some of the best and most exciting artists from all over the world gather in NY for one of the art world's most exciting 3 weeks. What makes Perfoma even more special is that it was founded and is run by Durban born RoseLee Goldberg. RoseLee Goldberg was also listed as No. 9 last year in Art Review magazine's Power 100 list, the list is made up of the international art world's most influential figures. So i'm raising flag to RoseLee and of course Athi-Patra Ruga. So proud of you boo, intliziyo yam ibhaka amascones.
