ARTIST POSTER 'HYBRID ENTERPRISES - 29 People Wanted Fur' Single b/w image of a covered sculpture with text '29 People Wanted Fur - But they didn't get it. Because 46 people wanted rubber. And they didn't get it because 49 people wanted aluminum. The Richard Feigen Gallery and the Kornblee Gallery present HYBRID at the Kornblee Gallery 58 East 79th Street, New York. Opening Saturday April 16th through May 5th 1966. Stiff card not folded in good conditon an archival item. A project run by two British artists (Peter Phillips and Gerald Laing) who ran an research project to find the perfect (most wanted) artwork by gathering data and feeding it into a computer. The pieces that were based on the research were exhibited in this show.

As Gerald Laing writes: 'HYBRID was an attempt to follow this to its logical conclusion, to remove all individual input, and to apply only commercial techniques to the creative process. Our intention was to ask people what they wanted, and then to give it to them. It was intended as an insult to the status quo, but the status quo being as it is, HYBRID was also greeted with enthusiasm, absorbed and digested - which in a way proved the point we were attempting to make.'
