With 10 days left in The Menil Collection’s “Silence” exhibition, here’s a special sound-art bonus for MANPodcast.com visitors and followers: A clip of Steve Roden and Stephen Vitiello’s The Spaces Contained in Each (2012), a live improvisation performed live at Houston’s Rothko Chapel on July 28!
Here’s the background: The second segment of Episode No. 40 of the Modern Art Notes Podcast featured Roden and Vitiello discussing The Spaces Contained in Each. Performed in association with “Silence” at the Menil, Roden and Vitiello’s work was inspired by their shared interest in John Cage, and in particular Cage’s 4’33”.
