John Cage’s Silence (Before, During, and After)
Wednesday, February 27, 2013, 11:30 a.m.
The Paul J. Sachs Prints and Illustrated Books Galleries, second floor
Join us in the exhibition There Will Never Be Silence: Scoring John Cage’s 4'33" and experiment with Cage’s exploration of silence as sound. Experience the impact of Cage’s radical approach to “scoring," not only in the field of music and dance, but in the space of visual art.
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
