CURATED LIBRARIES

Performance Art Bookshelf

Performance Art Bookshelf

In the 1960s and 70s, obscure Happenings and early performances by such avant garde pioneers as Allan Kaprow, Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, Yoko Ono and Vito Acconci challenged object-oriented art production and changed the terms of contemporary art forever. In the ensuing decades, Performance Art has come so thoroughly into its own that it has its own biennial, which draws visitors and participants from around the world. Here is a selection of indispensable books for any Performance Art Library.
