Silence (listen…)


in the back gallery, at 555 w 24th  street in nyc, you can see an eighty-ton steel monolith: made by richard serra, and titled “silence (for john cage)”

john cage, wanted us to listen. (to pay attention.)

that metal block is pretty quiet.

but i like the reminder.

(in the next room, there are three more steel slabs, just as massive, standing on end, arranged like this:)


the show was there until the end of july, 2016.
