Nothing to Say

September 9, 2011

This exhibition is concerned with examining nothingness, quiet, less is more, what is there and not there, and nonsense. The title comes from John Cage who commented, “I have nothing to say, and I’m saying it”; when referring to his 4 minutes and 33 seconds of silence performance.  “Nothing” can actually evoke “everything,” or at least an unexpected fullness (as in john Cage’s silence).

Featuring work by Lynne Avadenka, Jim Cogswell, Iris Eichenberg, Cynthia Greig, Paul Kotula, Michael Krueger, Melanie Manos, Stephen Prina, Jon Swindler and Cody VanderKaay.  Curated by Kathleen McShane-Bolton.

Exhibition runs September 9 - October 7.
