American artist Allan Kaprow (1927-2006) was a pioneer in establishing the concepts of performance art. In the 50s and 60s he began to coordinate ‘happenings’ in which carefully coordinated and scripted volunteers would act out a very ordinary series of events. Kaprow’s 1967 happening, FLUIDS, consisted of teams of volunteers building temporary enclosures out of ice blocks which are then left to melt. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is recreating this moment in performance art history on April 25-27 and is looking for volunteers. It’s a little last minute, but today, March 6th at 3pm there is a meeting at the Brown Auditorium at LACMA to begin coordinating the project. If you live in Los Angeles, this is an amazing opportunity to take part in live art and pay homage to the innovative, modern artist Allan Kaprow. Get involved or read more here.
