ALLAN KAPROW: coined the term 'Happening' describing a new art form, at the beginning of 60's - loosely scripted events, turned all participants into artists, allowed the performer to experiment with body motion, recorded sounds, written and spoken texts, even smells. Fluxus and Installation art were influenced by his work. Studied under J. Cage.
