Note:
Lawrence Weschler recorded the first three tapes of this interview in 1977 as a supplement to the Los Angeles Art Community Group Portrait Series interview with Robert Irwin. He then returned in 1978 to do additional interviews. The original audio recordings treat the 1977 and the 1978 sessions as separate interviews and number the tapes accordingly. For the purposes of clarity in the online version, the second series of interviews was renumbered so that the tapes are numbered continuously from 1 through 14.
