Leigh Waldron-Taylor’s Kaprow Reading Saturday Canceled!

by powhida on March 5, 2010

We are going to try to reschedule if we can!

Here is the event info:
I will read a written response to Allan Kaprow's essay Should the artist become a man of the world? published in ARTnews, October, 1964. Please read the essay and consider whether it has any significance for today's artist and the questions posed by #class. Skip what is obviously dated. The text is available online here in Kaprow's collected essays, Essays on the blurring of art and life (1993). Please note that the original essay, with the original question title, Thomas Hess' editorial, and December 1964 response letters make for more interesting reading.


This is a Think exercise, one offered as idea conduit to Ben Davis' 9.5 Theses on Art and Class discussion on March 19. Any questions can be left in the comment section below.

Thank you.
