Abstract

Description

Despite a major retrospective, Every Day is a Good Day, at the Baltic, Gateshead in 2010, John Cage's notoriety as a revolutionary sonic manipulator and composer is not yet imperilled by his repute as a visual artist. Here, artist Louise Clarke seeks to rebalance things a touch by running a very personal rule over a selection of Cage's engaging and , for her, influential visual works. The article used four pieces of work in order to investigate the prints and drawings of John Cage.
