In the late 1950s Allan Kaprow, the legendary American pioneer of performance art, coined the term ‘Happening’, describing an art form taking off from life and providing engaging situations. Two London-specific reinventions of his most significant “Happenings” take place at Tate Modern — building ice sculptures in Fluids, constructing stairways made of concrete blocks in Scales — and evolve into experiences of the physical body and communal effort.
