DESCRIPTION

"During three days, rectangular enclosures of ice blocks (measuring about 30 feet long, 10 wide and 8 high) are built throughout the city. Their walls are unbroken. They are left to melt."

On Sunday, April 27, from 12 - 5 PM, overlooking the panorama of the Los Angles Harbor, a crew of students from the El Camino College I.D.E.A.S. Club, community members and volunteers will gather together to construct Fluids as described in Kaprow's original score (above). On the days of April 25-27, Allan Kaprow's happening, Fluids, will be re-created at several locations throughout the Los Angeles in conjunction with the MOCA organized exhibition Allan Kaprow-Art as Life. The recreation of Fluids is coordinated by LACMA and supported in part by an in-kind donation from the Union Ice Company. Happenings are coordinated by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and made possible by generous support from the Getty Foundation. The exhibition Allan Kaprow-Art as Life is organized by the Haus der Kunst, Munich, and the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven and is on view at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA from March 23 to June 30, 2008.
