The Bolivar Room

AS Performance Series


To contribute to the institution’s history as a performance art venue and continue to highlight the relevance of performance in our program, Art at Americas Society presents AS’ Performance Series. Conceived in 2019, this series of programs aims at promoting performance art by providing an event space to showcase artists that work in performance. Starting with Ana Mazzei and Regina Parra’s Ophelia, Art at Americas Society has since incorporated performance into our programming in order to emphasize the importance of performance art.
