John Cage's score for 4'33"

Studio Art Professor Michael Smith is one of several artists and musicians invited by the Museum of Modern Art in New York to present a performance of John Cage's "silent" composition 4'33" and activate the piece in their own way. The series of performances is presented in conjunction with the exhibition There Will Never Be Silence: Scoring John Cage's 4'33", on view in adjacent galleries.

Smith's performance will take place February 19 at noon in the Bauhaus Staircase on the second floor.
