Art As A Verb
MONASH UNIVERSITY MUSEUM OF ART (MUMA)
Part of Visual Arts series.
PRESENTED BY MELBOURNE FESTIVAL IN ASSOCIATION WITH MONASH UNIVERSITY MUSEUM OF ART
COMMISSIONING CURATOR CHARLOTTE DAY
Art as a Verb interrogates the idea of art as a participatory or live medium – a form of action that strikes beyond the bounds of the frame. Drawing together a rich history of challenges, happenings, performances and manifestoes from the art world’s most celebrated provocateurs – including Allan Kaprow, Marina Abramović, Yoko Ono, Martin Creed, Bas Jan Ader and many more - Art as a Verb shines a blazing light on modern art’s most pivotal question: in the new century, what does it mean to be an artist and where do artists fit within the bigger picture of society?
“Instead of painting, move your arms; instead of music, make noise. I’m giving up painting and all the arts by doing everything and anything.”
