Environment III: Slipcover

1967
Installation of Environment III: Slipcover, by Les Levine.

“Shades of Jonah! I’ve just been inside one whale of a Happening! As part of what it calls its continuing series of environmental exhibits, the Architectural League of New York presented Les Levine’s Slipcover, a ‘Place,’ in its ground floor gallery…’Place’ is the ideal name for Slipcover, which consists of three rooms, the floors, ceilings and walls of which are covered in Mirro-Brite, a mirror finished metalized polyester film…Asked what was the strangest reaction he had to his exhibit, [Levine] thought for a moment, looking as if he preferred to be elsewhere. ‘Several people told me,’ he noted, ‘that they feel like taking off all their clothes and running around the rooms naked.'” The Telegram, April 22, 1967.
