The work references a specific instruction from her book Grapefruit, published in 1964, where the artist produced a series of ‘event scores’, which an individual might or might not enact, as follows:

Painting to Shake Hands (painting for cowards). Drill a hole in a canvas and put your hand out from behind. Receive your guests in that position. Shake hands and converse with hands.
