Yes, but in order to be listed they must have both a movie biopic about them and must be some type of performance artist.

A lot of these suggestions have yet to have a movie biopic made about them,

P.S. I removed Singers and Musicians from the scope and have given them their own poll suggestion, (given the volume of actress and musician biopics) Inspirational Women's History Singer and Musician Biopics,

P.S.S. I left some widely seen and more negative role model biopics like
Mommie Dearest (1981) on the the list. I took a contrarian view that it might inspire some to be a better mother or better father or not want to be that type of parent.

I personally find this list to be a slightly odd mix of people. I would perhaps focus on stage performers and actors, and move Marina Abramovich to your other artist list.

Performance Art is intended to be a catch all category, the type of acts is constant while the technology to showcase them has evolved over the past century.

Calling most of these people "performance artists" is a stretch.

I using the classification as in the broadly defined performance arts vs. visual arts meaning, not the obsurce, electric subset type that you are conjuring.

FYC 
(1) Radioactive (2019), about Marie Curie

(2) Girl, Interrupted (1999), about BP/BPD sufferer Susanna Kaysen (Kaysen is not much of a celebrity, but her story does resonate with a lot of us who have mood disorders, Will leave the film's inclusion to your discretion.)
