John Cage’s 33-1/3 – Performed by Audience

January 28 – May 6, 2012
In celebration of his enduring legacy and the 2012 centenary of his birth, the Museum is pleased to present John Cage’s 33-1/3 – Performed by Audience – an interactive installation guest curated by Jade Dellinger.

Tampa Museum of Art

A Celebration of the Centenary of the Composer’s Birth

One of the most influential artists of the 20th century, John Cage (1912- 1992) created sound and performance works that broke through boundary after boundary. In celebration of his enduring legacy and the 2012 centenary of his birth, the Museum is pleased to present John Cage’s 33-1/3 – Performed by Audience – an interactive installation guest curated by Jade Dellinger.

Conceived in 1969 as an “audience participation” work, John Cage’s original “score” simply stipulated that the gallery be filled with about a dozen record players and two- to three-hundred vinyl records. Museum visitors were encouraged to act as DJs and create a musical mix by playing records freely and thus performing the work.

According to guest curator Jade Dellinger, “when the work was first installed at the University of California in Davis, a local record store graciously volunteered the hundreds of necessary records. However, as Cage never discussed condition or specified titles, the store promptly sent over the most common and undesirable, damaged and utterly unsalable records in their inventory.” Dellinger was inspired by a line from a letter he received in the 1980’s from Cage in which the composer noted that “I am not interested in the names of movements but rather in seeing and making things not seen before.”

As “a tribute and in celebration of Cage’s centennial, the exhibition’s goal is both to honor and reinterpret Cage’s score with the assistance of a few rather special friends. The show aimed to create a broad spectrum of vinyl recordings as source material for visitor-participants to access at the Museum, and a prominent group of visual artists and performers (even a few Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famers) have been invited to submit Top 10 picks or album playlists to fill record bins. The participating visual and performing artists include:

Yoko Ono ,Iggy Pop, Graham Nash, David Byrne (Talking Heads), Bryan Ferry (Roxy Music), Jack White (The White Stripes), Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Richie Ramone (The Ramones), Jad Fair (Half-Japanese), Alex James (Blur), Meredith Monk, Arto Lindsay (DNA & Lounge Lizards), Blixa Bargeld (Einsturzende Neubauten), Mike Kelley (Destroy All Monsters), S.A. Martinez (311), David Harrington (Kronos Quartet), Emil Schult (Kraftwerk), Pauline Oliveros, The Residents, Vito Acconci, The Art Guys, John Baldessari, Matthew Barney, Christian Marclay, Jim Rosenquist, Ed Ruscha, William Wegman
