Historical NoteReturn to Top

And/Or gallery was organized in in 1974 to provide an alternative space for performances, exhibitions, and other experimental art forms that could not be seen otherwise. In 1981, it evolved into an umbrella organization of four parts: NX Library, a unique center for contemporary arts materials with a focus on periodicals; Soundwork, a composer-oriented new music organization; the Philo T. Farnsworth Memorial Video Editing Facility for artists and independent producers; and the "Spar," a new contemporary arts magazine. In late 1984, the Board of Directors discontinued And/Or, leaving the various programs which it had sponsored to continue under independent legal status.
