These papers comprise a portion of the Gilbert and Lila Silverman Fluxus Collection (the rest of the collection is housed with the Department of Prints and Illustrated Books and the Museum's Library). The Silverman Collection was built and organized by scholar Jon Hendricks starting c. 1977, working with collectors Gilbert and Lila Silverman. It grew into one of the world's largest collection of artwork, documentation, and published materials related to Fluxus, an international network of artists based primarily in New York in the 1960s and '70s, and particularly its founder, George Maciunas (1931-1978). These papers contain documentation, artifacts, and artworks gathered by Hendricks for the Collection, as well as the administrative records produced in the process.

The Jean Brown collection of art objects, 1958-1986 (ca. 493 items forming Series VI of the Jean Brown Papers) comprise an important collection of works by artists involved in the Fluxus movement or in other explorations of the conceptual arts, such as mail art, concrete poetry, happenings, etc. The works reflect these movements as they spanned the decades of the 1960s, 1970s, and early 1980s, with a high concentration of material emerging around the climactic year 1969 -- Items are constructions, assemblages, or other expressions, often small-scale and ephemeral, some existing simply as reflections or remnants of artistic or intellectual events. Many are one-of-a-kind pieces created especially for Brown, betraying the collector's intimate connection to the works and their creators. The pieces are arranged alphabetically by artist, with a large portion of unidentified works listed at the end. Additionally many of the objects also have their own individual analytic records within the ... Read More

The Allan Kaprow Papers offer comprehensive documentation of an artistic career that spanned the latter half of the 20th century and continues into the 21st. Arranged chronologically so as to demonstrate the artist's passage from student of art and art history to practicing artist, art theorist and art educator, the collection contains drawings, term papers and notebooks from Kaprow's student days, including a paper on Jackson Pollock and a Master's thesis on Piet Mondrian that he wrote as a student of Meyer Schapiro's, and scores he composed while studying with John Cage. The ca. 250 project files, comprising the complete extant documentation of Kaprow's Environments, Happenings, and Activities, demonstrate the evolution of Kaprow's Happening from a relatively scripted, grand, social event (Chicken; Household) to an austere, inter-subjective experience (Time Pieces; Rates of Exchange). They contain the artist's notes and drafts of his casually poetic scores, along with correspondence ... Read More
