£62.99
In the years since their passing, the historical importance of the partnership of John Cage and Merce Cunningham has grown to the point where no consideration of avant-garde art, music, and dance in America makes sense if Cunningham and Cage are not posited at the wellspring of its inspiration. In addition to Klosty's photographs of the artists, composers and dancers involved in Cunningham and Cage productions, and the dances themselves, both in rehearsal and performance, this book contains texts from Cunningham's associates including John Cage, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Carolyn Brown, Paul Taylor, Lincoln Kirstein, and a dozen others.
