Celebration Red

Visitors are invited to bring an everyday red object to the museum to contribute to Alison Knowles’s participatory, interactive installation Celebration Red. In 1962 Knowles started to write poetic scores for Fluxus events—instructions to perform simple actions and gestures, often in combination with found objects. Her original score Celebrate every red thing asks participants to choose a single red object and place it on a red grid on the floor. Please note: Objects will not be returned; they will be donated or discarded.
