An evening with Simone Forti

Choreographer Simone Forti will talk about the 'permissions' that the work and working methods of John Cage have given her in making dances and in the creating and showing of the sound installations she has made over the years.

Simone Forti is a postmodern American choreographer and musician who, throughout her nearly four-decade career, has created dances largely based on basic everyday movements. A noted dancer, Forti performed with Anna Halprin, Merce Cunningham, Martha Graham, Trisha Brown and Robert Whitman. Musically she has collaborated with La Monte Young, Richard Maxfield, Terry Riley, and Yoko Ono.

Cage Rethinks the Economics of Experimentation: an evening with Eva Diaz.

Scholar Eva Diaz will trace how Cage, in collaboration with others like Merce Cunningham and Jasper Johns, rethought the economics of art as collaborative exchange rather than speculative capital. Cage's ideas in the early 1950s through the 1970s, led to the organization of events and implementation of new models inwhich the visual artist funded the performing arts.

Eva Diaz is Assistant Professor of Contemporary Art at Pratt Institute. Díaz's writing appears in magazines and journals such as The Art Bulletin, Art Journal, Art in America, Cabinet, Frieze, Grey Room, and Tate Etc., and she is a regular contributor to Artforum. Her book on Black Mountain College, The Experimenters, will be released by University of Chicago Press in the fall of 2013.

Empty Words with artist Audra Wolowiec + musician Nate Wooley

Known for her sculptures and text works that respond to how sound is experienced and transmitted, Audra Wolowiec will talk about her work, the influence of John Cage's 12-hour piece, Empty Words. Musician Nate Wooley will perform one of Wolowiec ‘scores’ on his trumpet, amplifying the transition from language to music. 

Audra Wolowiec is an interdisciplinary artist from Detroit, MI, based in Brooklyn, NY. Through sculpture, sound, text and performance, her work explores the physical and ephemeral nature of communication, allowing experiences that merge the sensory with the conceptual. She received an MFA in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design and has shown work at Norte Maar, Magnan-Metz, and Art in General. Her work has been featured in the Brooklyn Rail, Requited Journal, and Thresholds Magazine (MIT Dept of Architecture).

Nate Wooley is a Brooklyn-based musician who combines vocalization, extended technique, noise and drone aesthetics, amplification and feedback, to create an idiosyncratic trumpet language. He has performed regularly with such icons as John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, Fred Frith, Evan Parker, and Yoshi Wada. His work has been featured at the WRO Media Arts Biennial in Poland, Kongsberg and Copenhagen Jazz Festivals, and the New York New Darmstadt Festival. He is currently an artist-in-residence at Brooklyn’s Issue Project Room and just completed a residency at London’s Café Oto.
