The Bronx Museum of the Arts and PERFORMA 07 are pleased to announce the launch of Delayed Patriotism, the debut New York City performance series by internationally renowned artist Tania Bruguera (Cuba/Chicago). Presented as part of PERFORMA07, the second biennial of new visual art performance, Delayed Patriotism explores the creation of the Party of Migrant People (PMP), an international institution with political aspirations, which defines displacement and migration as a new international culture.
The performance reflects on the idea of belonging while being an immigrant and the process of gaining the rights to be part of that new culture. Audience members will be given the opportunity to interact in Bruguera’s performance through photographic sessions that hope to capture the great American family portrait.
The Bronx Museum receives ongoing general operating support from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs with the cooperation of Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, Jr. and the Bronx Delegation of the New York Council, New York State Council on the Arts, Bronx Delegation of the New York State Assembly, and private supporters.
Additional support for this performance is also made possible by:
Admission: $5, free for Bronx Museum members
