DESCRIPTION

Following a national tour, a selection from this major exhibition of the visual art of the American composer, writer and artist John Cage (1912 - 1992) can be seen in the Hayward's Project Space.

John Cage was one of the leading avant-garde composers of the 20th century, most famous perhaps for his silent work of 1952, 4'33".

Cage was closely connected with art and artists throughout his long career. He collaborated frequently with Robert Rauschenberg and the dance choreographer Merce Cunningham, was a friend of Jasper Johns and Marcel Duchamp, and was a major influence on the Fluxus artists of the 1960s and 1970s.

This exhibition includes prints, watercolours and drawings made during the final 15 years of his life, including his extraordinary Ryoanji series.
