A Fragile But Marvelous Life

Nov 20, 2015-Feb 7, 2016
Taking its inspiration from artist Allan Kaprow’s Happenings—“something spontaneous, something that just happens to happen”—A Fragile But Marvelous Life presents a series of works that investigate the relationship between everyday movement and performance. The exhibition examines the notion of performance as not only the execution of an action, but also as a mode of behavior.

AAM exhibitions are made possible by the Marx Exhibition Fund. General exhibition support is provided by the Toby Devan Lewis Visiting Artist Fund.

A Fragile But Marvelous Life is supported by the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation for Latin American Art, and funded in part by the AAM National Council.
