John Cage in Contemporary Film
Curated by: Calcagno Cullen
Showing the Work of: Zen Cohen, Marc Governanti, Mark Harris, Chris Reeves, Heather Phillipson
Experimental composer, theorist, and artist John Cage once stated “Everything you do is music, and everywhere is the best seat.” His legacy continues to influence generations thinkers and artists as we contemplate the culture of chance and music through various cultural believes, values, and practices. This varied selection of films and performance encompass a wide range of Cagean practices and theories, some direct descendants of the late art icon and some with only a distant murmur of his wide spread influence. This series is presented in conjunction with the exhibition A Purposeless Play, a two-person show between Guillermo Galindo and Mark Harris opening at Wave Pool April 1st.
TRT: 90 minutes
Calcagno Cullen, Guillermo Galindo, Mark Harris, Marc Governanti, and Chris Reeves in attendance!
