Carl Solway Gallery / 1987

NF unbound pages in illustrated NF card board box embellished with colored rubber bands.

Comprising an idiosyncratic portrait of the enigmatic John Cage (1912-1992), Prepared Box for John Cage
provides a sense of this composer, artist, and innovator’s influence on the creative life of his time. Produced as a deluxe catalogue for an exhibition organized by the Carl Solway Gallery at the 1987 Chicago International Art Exposition, the portfolio honors Cage on the occasion of his seventy-fifth birthday. Through the contributions of forty-five artists, composers, choreographers, curators, and writers, invited by artist Allan Kaprow—personal anecdotes, images, games, poems, essays, and scores—a multifaceted sketch of Cage emerges.
