Allan Kaprow Book & Printed Matter Lab

11 December - 6 February 2016


The Hauser & Wirth Book & Printed Matter Lab focused on Allan Kaprow highlights the relationship between performance and print, displaying a selection of posters accompanying his Happenings as well as activity booklets from the artist. Allan Kaprow publications released by Hauser & Wirth as well as a video of ‘Fluids’ from 1967 are also on display. By the late 1950s, American figurative painter Allan Kaprow — formally trained in the era of Abstract Expressionism — began to view the action of Action Painting as far more important than painting itself.
