PRINT February 1967



In Mr. Bannard’s article Present-Day Art and Ready Made Styles, December 1966. is printed a photograph of the GAS Happening. I want to bring your attention to the caption. My name is spelled incorrectly. The Happening was sponsored by the Dwan Gallery. Allan Kaprxw, Mordi Gerstien (film maker) and Gordon Hyatt (CBS-TV) collaborated with me. The events were planned around my experiments with flying sculpture.

The purpose of combining sculpture, happenings, film and television was to see what was possible in a participating exchange rather than assuming traditional roles of participant and observer. The concept of sculpture not bound to the ground or pedestal, that moves through 3-dimensional space is in no sense related to pantheistic theatre or Pop art.

The section in my article on Ad Reinhardt (December, 1966) p. 46, column 1, lines 20 through 35, reads as if it is a paraphrase of a part of Priscilla Colt’s Notes on Ad Reinhardt, Art International. October, 1964. It is a direct quote.
