Adrian Henri: art and the happenings movement
An intensely creative painter, poet, performer and musician, Henri is difficult to categorise. Principally we know him as a key figure in the ‘happenings movement’ in Britain during the 1960s and ‘70s, which placed performance art at the centre of their activities. This exhibition at the ICA focuses on Henri’s contributions to this crucial improvisatory movement in 20th century art history.
Adrian Henri exhibition highlights
We are particularly excited to see artefacts from the artist’s estate, with original prints, collages, handmade posters and annotated scripts all on display. There will also be rare audio and visual material to discover, which gives an unprecedented insight into Henri’s working processes.
This London art show promises to be a highlight of the ICA’s calendar for anyone interested in the history of performance art.
