Cage: Silence and Beyond

About the Event

Cage often referred to his “silent piece” as his most important work, but does this piece overshadow his other artistic contributions, and most importantly, his craft as a composer? A series of talks and artistic responses explore the complex and interwoven ideas of 4’33” (1952) and beyond.
