Program for 9 Evenings, a series of experimental technology-assisted multimedia art performances held from October 13-23, 1966. The project was conceived by Rauschenberg and engineer Billy Kluver as a union of art and technology through person-to-person collaboration, and was born out of an initial meeting of artists and engineers at Bell Labs ten months prior. Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) would be formally founded as a nonprofit in 1967 to continue and support collaborative experimental work between artists and scientists; 9 Evenings is remembered as one of the group's most noteworthy achievements. Kluver's introduction makes this hopeful argument: "A direct involvement by industry is absolutely essential for any meaningful use of the potentials of professional technology by the artists. As a result the artists will help open new doors for the engineers and the engineers will give [sic] a fresh license to be poetic." Program follows Kluver's introduction with performance descriptions by the participating artists, illustrated with photographs and schematic drawings by their respective collaborators. Artists included: John Cage, Lucinda Childs, Oyvind Fahlstrom, Alex Hay, Deborah Hay, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Ranier, Robert Rauschenberg, David Tudor, and R. Whitman. The program concludes with a full-page photograph of assembled participants in front of the 25th St. Armory in New York City, followed by a biographical index of participating artists and engineers. Especially scarce with the errata, an uncommon document to an important event.
