musicians, poets, and performers including John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, Peggy Guggenheim,
Marcel Duchamp, and Jasper Johns. These three flyers documenting performances by La Monte
Young and Richard Maxfield are essential to understanding the movements of contemporary art and

photographed these, but if you visit we’ll gladly show them to you in a darkened room.
