The Work of Allan Kaprow (1927-2006). Allan Kaprow was interested in blurring the boundaries between art and life on the premise that “Life is more artlike than art”. He drew artists and participants into noticing and exploring life's spontaneous moments of sociability such as meeting a stranger through sharing a practical task. Where we commonly invest value in the completion of a task, Kaprow invested value in the quality of encounter that is created between people through shared activities. Kaprow developed events by writing a set of instructions - a poem or riddle to be figured out through participation.
