EVENT DETAILS
Thumbnail for - Happy Birthday: A Celebration of Chance and Silence In prominent Bay Area conceptual artist Paul Kos’s installation The Sound of Ice Melting, eight microphones surround two 25-pound ice blocks to capture the elusive, entropic tones of ice transforming into water. It’s but one of the pieces curated by Mack McFarland to set the tone for this cross-media, 100th birthday tribute to John Cage, a giant of post-war art and music. Other highlights include a striking 1970s mixed media illustration from Alison Knowles, whose award-winning work in the Fluxus movement drew on the radical techniques she picked up as an early student of Cage, and Portland-based artist Stephanie Simek’s solar- and plant-powered window-box experiment, which harnesses the power of nature to deliver her signature aleatoric chimes
