MFA has positioned itself as one of the first encyclopedic museums in the US to fully integrate performance art into its collection, exhibitions and programs. At the MFA, performance art encompasses a spectrum of live interactive experiences, and includes a range of works by local, national and international artists.

In Spring 2014, the MFA will open Permission To Be Global/Prácticas Globales, the first exhibition at the Museum to fully incorporate performance art on its checklist.
