John Cage

Every Day is a Good Day

19 June 2010 - 5 September 2010

Every Day is a Good Day is the first major exhibition and publication devoted to the entire range of American composer, writer and artist John Cage’s prints, watercolours and drawings. Cage was one of the leading avant-garde composers of the twentieth century, most famous perhaps for his silent work of 1952, 4'33".

Additional Information

The exhibition will include over 100 works on paper that span Cage’s entire visual art career. It will include his extraordinary Ryonaji series, described by the art critic David Sylvester as 'among the most beautiful prints and drawings made anywhere in the 1980s'. Echoing the artist’s use of chance to create work, the exhibition will be selected and installed using a computerised version of the Chinese oracle, the 'I Ching'.

The exhibition is organised by Hayward Touring in collaboration with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and the John Cage Trust. A special publication will accompany the exhibition.
