Over more than thirty years, Franklin Furnace has exhibited works by hundreds of avant-garde artists, some of whom - Laurie Anderson, Vito Acconci and the Blue Man Group, to name a few - are now established names in contemporary art.

Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive history of this remarkable organization from its conception to the present. Organized around the context of the major art genres that emerged in the second half of the twentieth century, this book intersperses first-person narratives with readings by artists and scholars on issues critical to the organizations success as well as Franklin Furnaces many contributions to avant-garde art.
