Hardcover. Mimeographed typescript sheet. Quarto. Overall very good with old folds and some rubbing. A program featuring Jackson Mac Low's performance as part of the historic concerts and performance series organized by La Monte Young and held at Yoko Ono's Chamber Street apartment. The series featured many of the top artists of the New York avant-garde scene including John Cage, Dick Higgins, Walter DeMaria, Terry Riley, Robert Morris, Toshi Ichiyanagi, Jim Dine, and Ono. The series closely paralleled the European shows being produced by George Maciunas and his newly developing Fluxus movement, which itself was inspired by the Dadaist. The Chambers Street shows led Maciunas to invite Ono to join his fledgling group and helped coalesce the various artists that would become the core members of Fluxus. This program focused on Mac Low's two-night performance of his poetry, music, and theater works held on Saturday April 8 and Sunday April 9, 1961. The 20-part performance features works written by Mac Low between January 1955 and March 1961 and with performance contributions from Young, Ichiyanagi, Diane Wakoski, Simone Morris, Joseph Byrd, Robert Dunn, Shimon Tamari, C.V.J. Anderson, Spencer Holst, Joan and Robert Kelly, Iris Lezak, and John Perreault. A wonderful piece of ephemera from this concert series that contributed to the emergence of the Fluxus movement.
