Cage season

Glasgow University Concert Hall and Hunterian Art Gallery host music and art

The List is particularly chuffed this fortnight to announce a John Cage double banger. Work by the composer, writer and artist can be seen as part of a special Cage season, which includes a lunchtime concert by the Hebrides Ensemble on 24 Feb, at the Glasgow University Concert Hall. The Ensemble will play Cage’s ‘Water Music’, as well James McMillan’s ‘14 Little Pictures’. Elsewhere, fans of Cage’s visual art can enjoy the extraordinary selection of Cage artworks also available to see at the Hunterian Art Gallery, as part of their Every Day is a Good Day exhibition of the American’s work, running from 19 Feb–2 Apr. The exhibition will include 50 works on paper that span Cage’s entire visual art career and include his ever-popular Ryonaji series.
