Soundseen: Cage/Braxton/Marclay

February 6th-March 26th, 2017

 

SoundSeen presents the musical compositions of three artists – John Cage, Anthony Braxton, and Christian Marclay – in which drawings, diagrams and images take the place of standard musical notation. These visually engaging “graphic” scores convey ideas and guidance for performing and experiencing the music of the artists, whose works exemplify a fluid, trans-aesthetic approach to art, beyond the boundaries of single medium or sensory channel. SoundSeen was presented in two sequences; first at Wake Forest University’s Hanes Gallery, and then at SECCA. The exhibition also included presentations and talks by Anthony Braxton and Christian Marclay, along with performances of their music and that of John Cage.
