  2. Alison Knowles

    Alison Knowles (born 1933) is an American  artist known for her installations, performances, soundworks, and publications. Knowles was a founding member of the Fluxus movement, the experimental avant-garde group formally founded in 1962. Criteria that have come to distinguish her work as an artist are the arena of performance, the indeterminacy of her event scores resulting in the deauthorization of the work, and the element of tactile participation. She graduated from Pratt Institute in New York with an honors degree in fine art. In May 2015, she was awarded an honorary doctorate degree by Pratt.

    In the 1960s, she was an active participant in New York City's downtown art scene, collaborating with influential artists such as John Cage and Marcel Duchamp. During this time she began producing event scores, or performances that rework the everyday into art. Knowles's inclusion of visual, aural, and tactile elements in her performances sets her art apart from the work of other Fluxus artists.

  4. Paolo Totaro

    I was born in Naples in 1933. Dad, babbo, Giuseppe, was from Sansevero in Puglia, and mamma, Martha Girosi, from a Neapolitan family of some distinction both in the arts and the Navy. I spent the school years at the Jesuit-run college Il Pontano from age 6 to 17. We were in Naples throughout the dark years of bombings and occupation by foreign armies of WWII. On completing school I studied at both the Conservatorio San Pietro a Majella, where I graduated in pianoforte, and at the University Federico II, in Naples, where I graduated in law. After a period of indecision – whether to follow the uncertain career of pianist or seek a more immediately stable income – I found a then rarely offered job at Fiat, in Turin.

    This led, in 1963, to a short-term transfer to Sydney with Mariella, my wife, and daughter Paola, then three years old. In 1965, our son,Riccardo, was born in Melbourne.
