Every Day is a Good Day is an exhibition of works by the composer
John Cage. Focusing on his lesser known visual art and inspired by the use of Cage’s chance determined scores; the exhibition uses an I Ching computer programme to determine the layout of all the works. The result is a random hang – some watercolours hung high and some prints hung unconventionally low (some of which are very beautiful, while others are very quiet). Not only this, but the display will keep changing. On a daily basis one work will be removed while another is introduced, the exhibition continues to stay in flux.
Every Day is a Good Day has been on tour around the UK to various galleries such as the Baltic and Kettle’s Yard. Now you can see a modest version of the exhibition at the Hayward Gallery’s project space along with a selection of film, music and documentary. There is also a fully illustrated exhibition catalogue. The exhibition runs until the 18th September and is accompanied by a John Cage Night at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on Tuesday 13th September.
