DESCRIPTION

John Cage: The Sight of Silence showcases 60 works most of which Cage created while he was an artist-in-residence at the Mountain Lake Workshop in Virginia during the 1980s and again in 1990. The exhibition showcases this production as well as some of the artist’s unusual graphic musical scores accompanied by recordings of his music, photographs and video of Cage performing and painting, as well as other documentary material, providing insight into the mind of one of the twentieth century’s most important avant-garde thinkers.
