Roselee Goldberg is a renowned art historian, critic and Founding Director and Chief Curator of Performa, a “museum without walls”, a non–profit arts organization which - since its inception in 2005 – has quickly become one of the most anticipated bi-annual contemporary art events in the country and abroad.
Performa has reached an international audience of over 250,000 people and features more than 700 artists at 216 venues throughout New York City.
Roselee Goldberg pioneered the study of performance art with her seminal book, Performance Art: From Futurism to the Present, first published in 1979, now in its third edition and translated to thirteen languages. It serves as a key text for teaching performance in universities throughout the world.
