John Cage: Lecture on the weather
16 September – 17 December 2017
Frith Street Gallery
60 Frith Street
London W1D 3JJ
This exhibition is curated by the artist Jeremy Millar, who conceived the exhibition Every Day is a Good Day – The Visual Art of John Cage for Hayward Touring (2010-11).
‘I dedicate this work to the U.S.A., that it become just another part of the world, no more, no less.’
— John Cage, Prelude, Lecture on the Weather (1975)
In the lead-up to America’s presidential election, Frith Street Gallery and the John Cage Trust join to present a unique iteration of a still prescient work by the seminal American composer, artist, and writer, John Cage. Lecture on the Weather (1975) was originally conceived as a work for either radio or the stage, as a commission from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to mark the Bicentennial of the USA. It will be presented at Frith Street Gallery in a new installation based on materials captured at an important 2007 performance at Bard College in upstate New York, featuring an extraordinary cast, including Merce Cunningham, Jasper Johns, Leon Botstein, John Ralston Saul, and others. Theirs was a tour de force realization of a masterpiece, now presented for the first time in Europe.
John Cage was devoted to Henry David Thoreau, and, like Ralph Waldo Emerson, believed there to be ‘no truer American’. For Lecture on the Weather, Cage drew excerpts from Thoreau’s classic texts, which he then cast into a score using I Ching-derived chance operations; additionally, each score was intermittently graced with chance-determined fragments of Thoreau’s nature drawings, which were to be interpreted as music, in the manner of graphic notation. At the start, Cage delivers a softly polemic prelude, and when the readings and musical realizations commence, so also begins a slowly escalating weather soundscape created by Maryanne Amacher. The work culminates with a film by Luis Frangella: Thoreau’s elemental nature drawings, now stark white on black, simulating flashes of lightning on a dark and stormy night. All of the elements — speech, music, film, lighting, and weather — combine to create a stunningly sensorial experience.
Complementing the installation will be a number of Cage’s early prints that also take inspiration from Thoreau. These include works from the series 17 Drawings by Thoreau (1978), Score Without Parts (40 Drawings by Thoreau) (1978), Signals (1978), Changes & Disappearances (1979-82), and Dereau (1982).

Judd Foundation New York
101 Spring Street
New York, NY 10012
For the temporary installation at 101 Spring Street, Long has used a terracotta slip to make works on the two east walls that extend the length of the building, measuring nearly 60 feet. Though Judd historically used the ground floor of 101 Spring Street for the exhibition of his work and others, Long’s work has never before been exhibited in the space.
Judd wrote on Long throughout the 1970s and into the late 1980s, with regard to the location, process, and exhibition of an artist’s work; and the lack of such support in New York. For Judd, “Competent art made in a place should be shown in that place.” Further, in an essay regarding the current state of the European art world, Judd definitively stated, “… Richard Long is the best artist in Europe.” Select essays will be included in the forthcoming publication Donald Judd Writings, to be released in November 2016.
Curated by Flavin Judd, the installation is part of an ongoing series that aims to highlight and contextualize the interrelated aspects of Judd’s work and that of his contemporaries. Judd Furniture, writings from the Donald Judd Archives, and selections from the Donald Judd Library in Marfa, Texas will accompany the installation, open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 1:00pm to 5:30pm through December 17, 2016.
Public programming will be included throughout the duration of the exhibition, and announced at a later date.
This installation by Richard Long is made possible with support from Sperone Westwater.

Ian Hamilton Finlay – Early Works (1963-1970)
11 October - 26 November 2016
6 Calton Terrace
Edinburg EH7 5DD
It is exactly fifty years since Ian Hamilton Finlay moved to Stonypath, the little farm deep in the Pentland Hills which became Little Sparta, one of the finest artist-gardens of all time and one of Scotland’s greatest 20th century artworks. Finlay arrived at Stonypath in the early days of October 1966 with his wife Sue and their six month old son Alec. A daughter Ailie was born soon after and in the years that followed Ian and Sue transformed their bleak surroundings into a poet's garden in the classical style. He the poet-artist, and she the gardener, tending the poems, as Sue put it, in the ever-changing landscape.The years immediately before and after this move to Stonypath represent one of the richest seams of Finlay’s career - a flourishing in which the concrete poetry that had begun to make his name found an even more concrete form as sculptures and poem-objects in the garden. In recognition of this anniversary, and also marking ten years since Ian Hamilton Finlay’s death, we are pleased to present a small exhibition centred around the year 1966, and extending a few years either side to include some of Finlay's seminal early works.

Esther Kokmeijer – Dagboek van een poolreiziger / Diary of a Polar Traveller
10 September – 13 November 2016
The exhibition is a reflection about the migration of the Arctic Tern, who annually migrate ± 70.000 - 90.000 km from the Arctic to the Antarctic and back. Science makes it possible to monitor the Arctic Tern in his flight and shows us a different perspective of our world.
The work of Esther Kokmeijer in this exhibition comes from her travels in the Arctic and Antarctic regions and her research of this Arctic Tern.
An Afternoon with the Poet Thomas A Clark
at the Terrace Gallery at Harewood House on Sunday 2 October 2016, 1.30 – 2.30pm
on the occasion of the the exhibition
Thomas A Clark – Grove of Delight
Leeds LS17 9LG
Through words and images, influential contemporary Scottish poet Thomas A Clark has transformed Harewood’s Terrace Gallery into a small grove of quiet and reflection, set aside from the light and openness of Capability Brown’s undulating landscape. The afternoon starts with Nigel Walsh, Curator of Contemporary Art at Leeds Art Gallery, in conversation with Clark; followed by a stroll through Harewood’s gardens, where Clark, author of In Praise of Walking, has made small poetic interventions, and then ends with tea and cake.
In association with Ilkley Literature Festival

Lapwing & Fox: Conversations between John Berger and John Christie
A publication with a series of conversations in the form of letters and small books sent between two friends, writer and critic John Berger and artist and film-maker John Christie.
Complementing their award-winning correspondence on the subject of colour, 'I Send You This Cadmium Red', published in 2000, 'Lapwing & Fox' covers a wide range of ideas surrounding art and artists, drawing and painting, nature and place.
As well as the close scrutiny of works by Giacometti, Modigliani, Frank Auerbach and others, and recollections of working with fellow artists and writers, the correspondence also explores a whole range of unexpectedly connected subjects, from making drawings of the dead and dying to encounters with barn owls and hares, and discussions of the mythologies surrounding them; from journeys on the Silk Road and observations of the night sky in Tajikistan to memories of the carved stone churches of Lalibela in Ethiopia and meditations on angels in literature, art and film. And besides thoughts on artists and writers as W.G. Sebald there is a nice passage on the work of the Dutch artist Hans Waanders.

Pat Law – The Gifts of Reading
This project was prompted by Robert Macfarlane's book The Gift of Reading, an essay on the power of books and how they can inspire and shape lives. It is an uplifting and generous contribution to the plight of the Syrian refugees who have no refuge or home to call their own. (All proceeds from book sales go to MOAS, the Migrant Offshore Aid Station). Scotland is a welcoming country and our remote mountain bothies reflect this non-exclusive spirit of sharing and giving. I'll be leaving a copy of The Gifts of Reading in various mountain bothies across Scotland. Each will contain a drawing I've created, specific to place, with a request to read the book and pass it on to someone else to help keep refugee awareness and the power of gifts flowing. I'll be assisted by a few artist friends who will generously traipse to bothies to leave and photograph each book in situ. The artists will include: Alexander Maris, Gerry Loose and Morven Gregor, Mhairi Law, Jon Macleod.
