In C&I I wrote a unit that introduced high school students to performance art through instructions. It featured the art of Yoko Ono, Sol LeWitt, Miranda July & Harrell Fletcher, and Laylah Ali & Dean Moss:
above: Yoko Ono’s instructions from her book Grapefruit
above: Miranda July & Harrell Fletcher’s Learning to Love You More website.
above: A painting the MoCA installed using the instructions of Sol LeWitt.
And here is a link to how Dean Moss transforms Laylah Ali’s two-dimensional guache paintings into movements and performances.
I have also attached a lesson plan on Sol LeWitt’s instructions for second and third grades. It was a blast to teach!
