Sound plays a key role in a number of the works in this exhibition. In some cases, the sounds are relatively soft or subtle, such as the whirring of the fans in Nari Ward’s Jacuzzi Bed. Others, such as Nam June Paik’s Piano Piece, offer an encounter with sound at its most bombastic. In Paik’s sculpture, a tower of television screens sits atop a player piano that belts out programmed notes. These visual and aural elements were inspired by the American avant-garde composer and friend of the artist John Cage.
