The second of the two exhibits curated by Hanna Regev on the theme of Chance, in honor of the centennial of the birth of John Cage opened February 17 at the San Francisco Center for the Book. The exhibit expands the definition of what constitutes a book, with exciting and ambitous interactive works, including a number involving video screens. It will take several visits to do justice to each piece. I feel very honored indeed to be represented with two works in such distinguished company. The show runs through May 12, and you can find a complete list of exhibitors at www.sfcb.org/. My little "Nest for John Cage" is in the photo above.
