Between October 10 and November 8, 2020, Galerie Sans Nom proudly presents PERFform, a Performance Art Tour in the province of New Brunswick. This tour will feature seven artists who have emerging and established practices in performance art: Marika Drolet-Ferguson, Emily Saab, Jerry Ropson, Xavier Gould, Samuel Landry as well as the founders of the project: Linda Rae Dornan and Mathieu Léger. PERFform aims to bring performance art throughout the province with this tour, hoping to disseminate an artistic practice that is more obscure from the tradition of visual arts. Made possible through a Touring Grant from the Ministry of Tourism, Heritage, and Culture of the Province of New Brunswick, this tour will bring the artists to 9 communities throughout the province. The artists have prepared a series of performances created specifically for this one of a kind tour in New Brunswick.
Please note that all necessary precautions will be taken to ensure everyone’s safety. The events will take place outside. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available on site. The artists will not approach the public.
