20 November - 8 January 2011 'Every Day is a Good Day'
The first major exhibition and publication devoted to the entire range of John Cage’s prints, watercolours and drawings travels from its installation at Gateshead's contemporary arts centre, The Baltic and Kettle's Yard, Cambridge to Huddersfield's Museum and Art Gallery.
The exhibition, entitled 'Every Day is a Good Day' will include over 100 works on paper that span Cage’s entire visual art career. It will include his Ryonaji series, described by the art critic David Sylvester as 'among the most beautiful prints and drawings made anywhere in the 1980s'. Echoing the artist’s use of chance to create work, the exhibition will be selected and installed using a computerised version of the Chinese oracle, the 'I Ching'.
The exhibition is organised by Hayward Touring in collaboration with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and the John Cage Trust. A special publication will accompany the exhibition.
