One Year Performance by Tehching Hsieh, poster/mailer, 1985, size: 17 x 11 inches.
This spare enigmatic poster announces a one-year performance in which Hsieh disconnected from the world of art. In a press release he announced I Not Do Art, Not Talk Art, Not See Art. I Just Go In Life. This performance was followed by Thirteen Year Plan during which Hsieh would make art but not show it publicly. A concluding report issued in 2000 simply states “I kept myself alive.”
