WORLD PREMIERE An unheralded yet pivotal figure in the art world of the 1960s and ’70s, Ken Dewey was a visionary artist and iconoclast. In his too-brief career, he introduced sitespecific participatory happenings to audiences in Europe and America and supported other artists through his position at the New York State Council on the Arts. With unprecedented access to Dewey’s extensive archive, and through interviews with contemporaries like Carolee Schneemann and Don McLean, Sally Jean Williams cements his lasting influence on our cultural landscape.
