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.
