Visit: John Cage at The Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery
- Hunterian Art Gallery |
- Saturday, 26 February 2011 - 10:30 until 12:30
There will be a visit to 'Every Day is a Good Day'; the first major exhibition devoted to the prints, watercolours, and drawings of John Cage, the American composer, writer and artist. Mungo Campbell, the Deputy Director of the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery will give an introduction to the exhibition before the visit commences. Cage was one of the leading avant-garde composers of the twentieth century, most famous for his silent work of 1952 entitled 4'33. The exhibition will include over 50 works on paper by Cage and his extraordinary Ryonaji series. The exhibition comes to the Hunterian from the Hayward Gallery in London.
There will also be an opportunity to view a recent acquisition: John Runciman's oil sketch of Haggar and Ishmael. The supporting works on show include at least two works acquired with the support of the Art Fund.
