John Cage  

Born Los Angeles, 1912; died New York, 1992.

Margarete Roeder Gallery exclusively represents the visual works of John Cage from the John Cage Trust. Cage, a seminal cultural figure of the twentieth century is known for his work as a composer, musician and set designer. These overlapping roles also led him to work in the visual arts, primarily in the fields of watercolor, drawing and printmaking. In addition to these areas, which Cage extensively investigated in the 1970s and 1980s, the gallery also exhibits scores, in Cage's own idiosyncratic, non-standard notation which form visual works in themselves. Cage's work has been regularly exhibited at Margarete Roeder Gallery; the most recent retrospective of his work was organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 1993 and traveled to the Menil Collection, Houston; Guggenheim Museum, New York; Art Tower Mito, Tokyo and the Philadelphia Museum of Art..
