 Research Results: 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering by Clarisse Bardiot

Each year, the Researchers in Residence Grant Program allows the Foundation to offer two researchers the chance to work at its Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) and explore its fonds and collections.

Clarisse Bardiot (Ph.D.) was a resident at the CR+D in 2005 and focused her research primarily on the 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering fonds. A result of her research, this Web publication explores the technological aspects of the festival presented in New York in 1966, which brought together 10 artists, including Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, Lucinda Childs, and many others, as well as some 30 engineers from Bell Telephone Laboratories (Murray Hill, N.J., U.S.). Ms. Bardiot's project hinges on the diagrams produced by engineer Herb Schneider. In the publication, she offers an analysis of their content by comparing them to visual material (notably the factual footage produced by Alfons Schilling), eyewitness accounts of the festival, and archival documents.

From May 4 to July 9, 2006, the MIT List Visual Center (Cambridge, MA, U.S.) will present 9 Evenings Reconsidered: Art, Theatre, and Engineering, 1966. Organized by independent curator Catherine Morris, the exhibition will showcase extensive archival material associated with this event and offer various points of view of the 10 performances presented at the 69th Regiment Armory in 1966. The Foundation has loaned a number of objects and materials from its 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering fonds to the exhibition, including, among others, a collection of factual footage produced by Alfons Schilling, stage props, technological components, and technical drawings by engineer Fred Waldhauer. An illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
