"The Happenings artists personified the collapse of the hegemony of painting and sculpture as they introduced elements from daily life and popular culture into environments and performances. It is indisputable that between 1958 and 1963 these events transformed art, the perception of art, and its reception by the public, which itself had been transformed by these actions." - Milly Glimcher

Happenings: New York, 1958–1963 will be on view at 534 West 25th Street through March 17, 2012.
