who were included in the famous 9th St. Show,
(1951) and in all the following New York Painting
and Sculpture Annuals from 1953 to 1957. These
Annuals were important because the participants
were chosen by the artists themselves.
Alexander Calder wrote in 1968: As long as there are people such as Al Kotin,
there is no danger to art.
