"I find the idea quite brilliant but do not feel like participating . . . . I don't feel strong enough to undertake any action even 'by telephone.' ". . . I hope you will understand and make a success of the show." In February of 1967, Jan van der Marck became director of the newly-opened Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. The Museum's first exhibitions not only included the work of interdisciplinary artists, it also invited them to participate in roundtable discussions and lectures.
