What is silence? Can we possibly hear silence, see nothingness, experience anything outside the continuum of time? John Cage famously asserted that there is no such thing as silence or empty space or empty time: “There is always something to see, something to hear.”1 Inspired by Cage’s groundbreaking 1952 musical composition 4’33” and the one-hundredth anniversary of the composer’s birth, Silence...   [more]

“I use the art of painting to represent color as the transparent appearance of light.”1When Swiss-born artist Rudolf de Crignis (1948–2006) first visited Manhattan in the late 1970s, he was deeply affected by Minimalism, particularly the powerfully spare abstract paintings of Agnes Martin, Robert Ryman, Brice Marden, and Ad Reinhardt. He soon made New York his home and shifted from performance, v...   [more]

“There was no chance in Parades and Changes,” recalls composer Morton Subotnick. “Everything was done by choice, but there was a freedom in choice.”First performed in 1965, Anna Halprin'sParades and Changes pioneered the use of everyday movements and domestic rituals in dance, marking the onset of postmodern choreography. The dance revolves around a set of mundane tasks—unrolling giant sheets of plastic, sto...   [more]

The Morakot Hotel was a haven for Cambodian refugees fleeing the Vietnamese invasion in the 1980s.
