"Indeterminacy" at Large Glass, London
28 Nov. 2014 - 27 Feb. 2015
Opening 27 November, 6-9 pm
"The collection of works in the show, is inspired by the composer John Cage's recognition of indeterminacy as an important state in the making of art. Ian Hunt has written a piece to accompany the display, here is an extract:
"For modern artists, indeterminate operations and conditions have been useful principally for the way they give life to new forms of interpretation, sense-making and order. The work to which Cage gave the programmatic title Indeterminacy is a set of frequently comic stories interrupted by silences, so that each takes a minute to read. The works assembled in this exhibition make use of some modes that Cage employed: notably repetition, transcription, imitation and transformation of sources and givens. The variety of approaches here - including the socially porous, the surreal and the frankly curious - chimes with Cage’s own diversity as an artist.”
