Finding aid for the Allan Kaprow papers, 1940-1997
Series III. Project Files, 1946-1999 14.0 linear feet
Project Files form the core of the collection. Arranged chronologically by year and, where possible, by month, they begin with .5 linear feet of slides and photographs of Kaprow's early paintings, and drafts of early scores. The remaining Project Files document the 231 Environments, Happenings, or Activities in the collection, including some that were never realized. Typically, a file contains a score, often both handwritten and revised typewritten versions; correspondence with the sponsoring institution regarding funding, site specifications, and travel arrangements; photographs of the work; and possibly clippings or press releases. Files for Happenings created between 1967 and 1969 often contain a poster that served as both publicity for a Happening and as its score (see also Series IV.D. Posters). Files for Activities created between 1970 and 1979 often contain Activity Booklets, that is, booklets made to look like training manuals that document a piece with photographs and text and may also serve as scores for future reinventions. Pieces Kaprow reinvented more than once in his career (such as "Yard" or "Words") are listed in the chronological sequence each time they were reinvented, and the entry for the original piece lists all subsequent reinventions for which there is documentation in the collection. (For a more complete list of Kaprow's work, see his Curriculum Vita in the Research file for 980063). The entry for each project begins with the name of the sponsoring institution or, where that is not known, the location. Please note that the dates of projects have been authenticated by reference to announcements or clippings or by discussions with Allan Kaprow and that dates on the versos of photographs are not authoritative. Moreover, research related to the GRI book on Kaprow has led to date reassignments that are noted in brackets next to the title of the Project file, but the files have not been moved. Also note that slides, negatives, minox, and color prints, while listed under the Project file, are in cold storage boxes 112-115.
