Allan Kaprow, Posters, &: nathalie et christophe daviet-thery éditions, 2014

This publication documents Kaprow’s posters, a lesser-known side of his work, produced between 1953 for his first show at the Hansa Gallery, New York and 1996 at Kunsthalle Palazzo, Liestal.
Allan Kaprow (1927–2006) was an American artist who is perhaps best known for his work 18 Happenings in 6 Parts that took place at the Reuben Gallery in New York in 1959. In 1958 he wrote an essay, “The Legacy of Jackson Pollock,” that became an essential text for understanding the development of his work and indeed the entire Sixties performance art scene: “Pollock, as I see him, left us at the point where we must become preoccupied with and even dazzled by the space and objects of our everyday life, either our bodies, clothes, rooms, or, if need be, the vastness of Forty-second Street. Not satisfied with the suggestion through paint of our other senses, we shall utilize the specific substances of sight, sound, movements, people, odors, touch.”
With texts by Steve Roden & Oscar Tuazon.
