Art is: John Cage, for Starters

In Art, Things I Have Loved on March 15, 2011 at 6:44 pm

Something tells me Garry Moore and CBS would have been a bit more…hesitant…

maybe, 4’33 of hesitation…

to invite Cage to perform this piece on I’ve Got a Secret.

And of course not 4’33.

Dead air? Or, “Silence cures all?”

Why does art have to mean or represent something? In 2011? We are just shy of the 100th anniversary of The Armory Show for crying out…silence.
