Event Details

The Rubin Museum of Art



On Silence, a collaborative event featuring musical and visual components, is a dialogue on the concept of silence in visual art and music, a nod to the 2012 centennial of composer and theorist John Cage. The evening’s series of performances, curated by Janna Dyk, will feature music by CMF 2012 Composer-in-Residence Somei Satoh as well as original compositions by Joshua Clayton, Brent Dickinson, James Hall and Aaron Kruziki, which derive from a thoughtful engagement with the topic, instigated by the reading of Silence, written by premier Japanese novelist Shusako Endo, and in consideration of excerpts from John Cage’s book of lectures by the same title.  The two texts create a diverse and uncanny conversation, one whose language here spans genres from classical to progressive jazz, ambient, experimental, and the avant garde, on the nature of silence, its effects, and implications.


The event at the Rubin Museum of Art is in conjunction with an art exhibition of over 20 New York artists' works, which will be exhibited at the NYCAMS Gallery in Chelsea, June 15-25, 2012, with an opening reception on Thursday, June 14, from 6-8pm.  The reception is free and open to the public.  Gallery hours are 10am-4pm, or by appointment.
