Notes Catalogue of the exhibition at World Chess Hall of Fame, Saint Louis, MO, May 8 to September 21, 2014.
Summary "Cage & Kaino: Pieces and Performances" is an exhibition accompanied by rare live performances of the work of 20th-century composer John Cage and contemporary multimedia artist Glenn Kaino. Influenced by Marcel Duchamp, Cage and Kaino each created works inspired by their fascination with chess. Cage's classic 1968 Reunion performance uses chess play to spontaneously compose and conduct unique musical performances, while in Kaino's 2007 Burning Boards event the chess pieces made of burning candles force thirty-two players to confront time and chance. Gallery visitors may play on a working replica of Cage's Reunion chessboard or study Kaino's One Hour Paintings, portraits of grandmasters that surround his monumental Learn to Win or You Will Take Losing for Granted chess board, which features pieces cast from the artist's own hands.
