Relâche: The theater may have gone dark, but the lights flashed on again on November 29th, as Performa held its Surrealist fantasy of a fundraising gala, Relâche—The Party. Relâche is the most successful Performa fundraiser to date, and we are truly grateful for everyone's generosity and support. 

To date, Relâche has been covered extensively in ArtforumArt in America, Artinfo, ArtObserved, Black Tie Magazine, GothamerThe New York Times, Paper, W magazineThe Wall Street Journal, Whitewall, and, last but not least, this editor's own review in V MAGAZINE

We will be sharing more behind-the-scenes coverage from this unforgettable event in the coming weeks. Photos from our archive photographer, Paula Court, are already available to view here, and our Relâche Photo Booth album by Jonathan Hokklo can be seen here

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone for making the evening an extraordinary kickoff to Performa 13, taking New York by storm next November. Surrealism will serve as a historical point of reference, and Relâche—The Party supports Performa Commissions and the biennial. We can't wait to share it with you. 

Jennifer Piejko is the editor of Performa Magazine.
