Pussy Riot Will Be Performing at Art Basel Miami Beach… at an Exclusive, Invite-Only Event

Though Pussy Riot has made their name via subversive political performances, the Russian group of artists and activists are currently in the States to (among other things) take the stage at Art Basel. And though in this current volatile political environment the group may be expected to pull off something spectacularly significant, it’s sorta strange that they’re participating in an exclusive, invite-only event.

Though rumors had already started to buzz, Kathy Grayson of New York gallery The Hole confirmed to artnet News that Pussy Riot will be involved in a rare “political happening” that will incorporate both a performance and a talk.

But HOLD ON! If you’re all ready to get your artistic activism on, you should probably note that this is an exclusive event and admittance is by invitation only. A mere 500 people will get in and anyone else wanting in on the politically-charged experience will be S.O.L.

Hopefully those exclusive few who get to witness the performance will come away with something we all can see (or at least hear about).
