Performa is a non-profit arts organization widely recognized for its groundbreaking live performances by visual artists and the Performa Biennial — a festival of performance art that happens in various venues and institutions in New York City every other year.

The organization recently launched its first-ever 8-hour global Performa Telethon fundraiser, broadcasted live from Pace Gallery, featuring a star-studded line-up of newly-commissioned performances and limited edition “home goods” from a selection of the world’s leading artists. Performers include Derrick Adams & Dave Guy, Laurie Anderson, Jérôme Bel, Torkwase Dyson, David Hallberg, Glenn Kaino, Ragnar Kjartansson, Lang Lang, Marching Cobras, among many others.

The editions for sale include original designs by Korakrit Arunanondchai, Barbara Kruger, Kia LaBeija, Michèle Lamy and Katerina Jebb, Laurie Simmons and David Bers Architects and Cindy Sherman. Highlighted editions include Kruger’s porcelain vase imprinted with the texts “CULTURE” and “NATURE” in black and blue, Michèle Lamy and Katerina Jebb’s functional serving tray made of a scanographic portrait of Lamy imagined by Jebb, and Korakrit Arunondachai’s Mother Pillow which is an extension of the artist’s practice of creating body pillows that are part of his painting and video installations which audiences can recline and sit on.
View the selection of “Home Goods” above and purchase the editions on Performa’s online shop.

In other editions, Toys Pottery released a new resin sculpture edition with Off the Record called Sky Chaser.
