A Performance Affair (APA) is a new platform for performance art. Set up as a non-for-profit organisation. APA is an evolving structure that brings together artists, galleries, collectors and institutions to research and discuss current tendencies in performance art and the economic structures around it. A Performance Affair is not another art fair, but a flexible stage aimed at stimulating the acquisition of performance while finding solutions for its development and sustainability. The Panopticon is the inaugural edition, which will be iterated in several countries in parallel to other events in order to highlight progress to the wider public, collectors and professionals.
