Originally presented in 2006 at the MIT List Visual Center (Cambridge, MA, U.S.), 9 Evenings Reconsidered is a touring exhibition that was featured at Concordia University's Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery (Montreal) in the spring of 2007, then in Berlin (Germany) at the Tesla from November 10, 2007, to December 8, 2007, and then at the Museum of Design Zürich (Switzerland), from July 30 to September 7, 2008
Organised by independent curator Catherine Morris, the exhibition showcases extensive archival material associated with this event and offers various viewpoints of the 10 performances presented at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York 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 sample of the factual footage produced by Alfons Schilling, stage props, technological components, and technical drawings by engineer Fred Waldhauer.
