Essays on the Blurring of Art and Life by Allan Kaprow

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I thought some of the essays in this book were inspiring. Especially the topics dealing with ‘work vs. It made me start consciously thinking about the balance and if it can be achieved. The essay in the beginning about Jackson Pollack is kind of random so I recommend skipping it if you really want to enjoy the book and then maybe go back to it later if you want.

Anyways Allan Kaprow is really nlurring and it’s the act of spontaneity and unforeseen ane that make him amazing!

He is one of those people that builds roads and has helped refine the philosophy behind the process of making art. This book is a must have for any undergraduate or graduate art student or for anyone who is interested in gaining a better understanding of contemporary art practices.

I needed it for class. As I started this book, I was really excited to read it.

I thought it kaprlw going to apply really well to my art making. It didn’t turn out to do that. But it definitely made me think of the everyday things I do that I maybe don’t pay attention to. I feel like a lot of the essays talk about how much we don’t realize and how art could be different if we did. Blurring art and life may seem easy, but as I’ve put it into practice it really hasn’t been all that simple.

Now I’m trying to take the time to watch and document life as it passes me by. All in all, I thought it was a great book. It had to be if it affected me like this.


It took me 30 years to come back to this subject, which was the logical conclusion to where art was and still is heading.
