Action/Performance & the Photograph

Curator Craig Krull, Turner/Krull Galleries, for Curatorial Assistance Inc., Pasadena

As the exhibition’s title suggests, photography has played an integral role in performance, Happenings and other artists’ actions since the late 1950s. Conceptual and body art events of the 1960s and 1970s were often orchestrated by artists specifically for the camera. The resulting images became documents and, in some cases, art objects. Supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
