"The Visual Art of John Cage: To Sober and Quiet the Mind"
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 avant-garde musical 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.
