CalArts Reinvention of Allan Kaprow's Publicity

Although Allan Kaprow’s tenure as a faculty member at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) was short, he created some very significant works with CalArts students in the early 1970s. CalArts students, alumni, and faculty are revisiting Kaprow’s history at CalArts and will reinvent Publicity (1970), which was originally produced with and for the CalArts student body. In this Happening, students built improvised wooden structures in the desert area of Vasquez Rocks near CalArts, while others videotaped them and immediately replayed it for the participants.
