Harold Gregor, the Chairman of the Art Department at Chapman College at the time, produced this exhibition as an antagonistic response to the Primary Structures exhibit at the Jewish Museum in New York (1966), and to Carl Andre’s Lever in particular. Everyman’s Infinite Art has been called both a “satirical misreading of minimalism” and as “paralleling the emerging practices of New York conceptual artists,” predating Lawrence Weiner’s Statements by two years and Robert Barry’s Closed Gallery by three years. Everyman’s Infinite Art was recreated in 2011 for the Getty’s series of exhibitions, Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980. An extremely rare item. Item #10.
Condition: Fine, folded as issued, some tears to envelope, which is missing its flap.
