Allan Kaprow: Yard

A selected facsimile from the Allan Kaprow Estate workfile published on the occasion of ‘Allan Kaprow. Yard‘ at Hauser & Wirth New York, September 23 – October 31, 2009.

Hauser & Wirth opened its first American gallery with a presentation of Allan Kaprow’s seminal Environment Yard, an enduringly influential work – a veritable mountain of black rubber auto tires and tarpaper-wrapped forms through which visitors jumped and crawled – first made by the artist in 1961 and radically reinterpreted in other locations ten times before his death in 2006. The exhibition ‘Allan Kaprow. Yard’ presented a dramatic, sprawling reinvention of Yard by prominent performance artist and interventionist William Pope.L at the site of the work’s original creation: the Manhattan townhouse at 32 East 69th Street, then home to the legendary Martha Jackson Gallery and the address of the new Hauser & Wirth New York gallery.
