South African artist Athi-Patra Ruga will debut a new iteration of his captivating series The Future White Women of Azania (2010-present) in a free public performance at 8 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Miami Beach Regional Library as part of bassX, the Bass Museum of Art’s series of artistic projects. In this rendition of The Future White Women of Azania, Ruga will perform alongside eight to 10 dancers, all clad in his signature costumes of colorful balloons and tights.
