Silence and Time: Contemporary Art Inspired by John Cage's 4'33"
May 29 - August 28, 2011
1717 North Harwood, Dallas, TX 75201
Works from the DMA’s collection with loans from “important local collectors” about solitude, reflection, and time, based on John Cage’s famously silent 1952 composition 4’33″. DMA curator Jeffrey Grove has chosen twenty-six works , among them a newly acquired 1.7-ton onyx sculpture by the Bosnian-French artist Bojan Šarčević, a tower of basalt and a gilded marble orb by glam sculptor James Lee Byars. Nothing says silence like big blocks of stone!
