Allan Kaprow

Art as life

Artist: Allan Kaprow

Curator: Eva Meyer-Hermann

The Van Abbemuseum, in association with Haus der Kunst in Munich, is organising the first major solo display in Europe of American artist Allan Kaprow’s work, which will trace his artistic output over the past 50 years. Kaprow, father of  the ‘happening’ and the most famous unknown artist died in April 2006. We are extremely grateful for the fact that the artist was still able to work intensively on the preparations for this exhibition.
