In November, 1972, 22-year-old Paul McMahon began organizing a series of
one-night exhibitions at a community art center in Cambridge,
Massachusetts called Project Inc. McMahon used his meager salary as a gas
station attendant to rent the space and to mail xeroxed exhibition
announcements to friends. He gradually enlisted a coterie of friends and
acquaintances, many of whom were students at the California Institute of
the Arts and the Novia Scotia College of Art and Design, to mount one-day
shows of conceptual and performance art. They included Sol Lewitt, Robert
Morgan, David Salle, Willoughby Sharp, Martha Wilson, Lawrence Weiner,
Laurie Anderson, Michael Asher, and many others.

Beginning on July 2, Churner and Churner will host a week-long program
celebrating the legacy of Project Inc. Preserving the DIY ethos of
McMahon.s original undertaking, the gallery has invited the artists from
the original Project Inc. roster to show any work, including recent
pieces, alongside work from Project Inc. The show will include a score for
a wall drawing by Sol Lewitt, sculptures by GH Hovagimyan and Doug
Huebler, a monography on paleolithic writing by Donald Burgy, and short
films by Greg Amenoff and Dean Nimmer, David Askevold and Tony Oursler,
Ernst Caramelle, Jack Goldstein, Dan Graham, Paul McMahon, and Lawrence

Project Inc. Revisited is accompanied by a publication featuring a text by
Paul McMahon and photographs and documents of the original Project Inc.
