During the Experiments in Environment workshops, dancers, architects, and environmental designers took part in “altering environments” with movement sessions and collective building projects. The California Historical Society’s exhibit includes original photographs, films, drawings, and scores of these projects.

“Drawn from architecture, ecology, music, cinematography, graphics, choreography, and lighting, Experiments in Environment brought together artists, dancers, architects, and environmental designers in avant-garde environmental arts experiences,” said the California Historical Society in a press release.

The exhibition was organized by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, Chicago.
