2000-12-20 until 2001-04-15
California Palace of the Legion of Honor
San Francsco, CA,
USA United States of America
John Cage (1912-1992)
was best known for his
compositions that defied
conventional rules of
harmony and were
composed using what he called chance operations. He
also created visual work beginning with graphic scores,
then added printmaking, drawing and watercolor.
Cage made his first etchings at Crown Point Press in San
Francisco in January of 1977, and he continued to work at
the press for two weeks every year until his death. A
selection of approximately 50 his etchings and
monotypes are presented in this exhibition co-curated by
Karin Breuer, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts and
Kathan Brown, founder and director of Crown Point Press.
Included will be Seven Day Diary (1978), Cage's first
project at the press; Déreau (1982), a 38-print series
inspired by the drawings of the 19th-century American
writer, Henry David Thoreau; and 75 Stones (1989) a
large print that combines rock tracings with Cage's
signature smoked paper technique.
