Nearly 50 years his mountain of car tires and tarpaper was dumped in an art gallery’s backyard, a “reinvention” of Allan Kaprow’s “Environment Yard” has opened on the Upper East Side. The pile of 1,200 tires and body bags, created by performance artist William Pope.L, is the premiere show at Hauser & Wirth’s New York gallery, located at the site of Kaprow’s original installation, 32 East 69th Street. On view through October 24, the “Allan Kaprow YARD” exhibition also includes reinventions by artists Josiah McElheny and Sharon Hayes, a “massive photo projection at the Queens Museum of Art” and an installation of hand-painted signs at the New York Marble Cemetary respectively.
