A series of artist reinventions taking place across Jupiter Artland this summer
American artist Allan Kaprow (1927 – 2006) has been described as an avant-garde revolutionary, a radical sociologist, a progressive educator and one of the most influential artists of his day. Known for his ‘Happenings’, Kaprow coined the term to describe his anarchic gatherings in 1960s New York, in which the audience became participants.
During these strange times, each and every one of us has had to adapt to the new world that Covid-19 has created. This summer, Scottish and international artists will reinvent artworks from Kaprow’s career, reimagining them for our extraordinary current moment and our new shared reality.
Jupiter Artland is currently open to its local members via pre-booked timeslots, plus their guests provided they live within 5 miles. This year, our Friends of Jupiter Artland can also apply for membership for their dogs.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Allan Kaprow Season are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
