Thing of Beauty: Apartment House Performs Jackson Mac Low




This event is now fully booked; returns may be available on the door, shortly before the performance begins.

Jackson Mac LowJackson Mac Low (1922-2004) was a legendary American poet, performer, composer, playwright and artist.

From the mid-1950s onwards, his work explored systematic chance operations and other non-intentional methods, making him a pioneer of indeterminacy in art, alongside John Cage. As an early member of Fluxus, and the leading figure of the Language avant-garde poetry movement, his strikingly beautiful and seminal work changed the forms, methods, performance and possibilities of literature.

Apartment House will perform a selection of his works, covering 50 years of his compositions.

Apartment House:
Elaine Mitchener, Loré Lixenberg, Leo Chadburn, Mira Benjamin, Miles Lukoszevieze, Anton Lukoszevieze

It often seems to me that the whole point of art is pleasure. The pleasure of making artworks and the pleasure of experiencing them

— Jackson Mac Low
