Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, 220 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611, United States
A new exhibition celebrating the work of legendary avant-garde composer and artist John Cage is set to open in Chicago.
Entitled MCA DNA: John Cage, it will trace instances of where Cage's work intersects with the Museum of Contemporary Art throughout his lifetime.
This year marks the centenary of the artist's work and this represents just one of many events that are taking place all over the world to honour Cage.
The 1982 New Music America festival is possibly Cage's most famous association with Chicago - and he realised a score named A Dip in the Lake: Ten Quicksteps, Sixty-two Waltzes, and Fifty-six Marches for Chicago and Vicinity especially for the occasion, which now resides in the Museum's collection.
