Project Inc. Revisited
"In November, 1972, 22-year-old Paul McMahon began organizing a series of one-night exhibitions at a community art center in Cambridge, Massachusetts called Project Inc. McMahon used his meager salary as a gas station attendant to rent the space and to mail xeroxed exhibition announcements to friends. He gradually enlisted a coterie of friends and acquaintances, many of whom were students at the California Institute of the Arts and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, to mount one-day shows of conceptual and performance art. They included Sol Lewitt, Robert Morgan, David Salle, Willoughby Sharp, Martha Wilson, Lawrence Weiner, Laurie Anderson, Michael Asher, and many others." The book includes an introduction & commentary on the artists & exhibits by Paul McMahon himself. A nice look at a microcosm of an active conceptual art scene of the first part of the 1970’s.
