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.
