Summary "Critical Mass chronicles ephemeral work on the Rutgers campus and in New York City, and the innovations that grew from Robert Watts, Allan Kaprow, and George Brecht's "Project in Multiple Dimensions." With texts and performance scores by artists - together with numerous photographs of the events and essays by art historians and critics Hannah Higgins, Jill Johnston, Susan Ryan, and Kristine Stiles - Critical Mass presents a vivid picture of a dynamic movement."--P. [4] of cover
