EX­PECT THE UN­EX­PECTED

UN­TIL SEPTEM­BER 29

An eclec­tic and provoca­tive exhibition of work by visual artists who in­cor­po­rate el­e­ments of chance in their work, in­spired by John Cage’s hugely in­flu­en­tial per­for­mance piece 4’ 33”.

Seem­ingly four and a half min­utes of si­lence, Cage’s work is in fact com­prised of all the chance am­bi­ent noises from within the au­di­to­rium and from the au­di­ence – each per­for­mance is dif­fer­ent to the last.

Ex­pect the Un­ex­pected fea­tures a di­verse col­lec­tion of artists in­clud­ing Yoko Ono, Keith Tyson, Gil­lian Wear­ing and Greig Bur­goyne – all of whom have also know­ingly in­cor­po­rated an element of chance into their work.
