How a little-known industrial neighborhood in New York unintentionally became a nexus of creative activity for a brief burst of time. During the 1960s and 1970s in New York City, young artists exploited an industrial wasteland to create spacious studios where they lived and worked, redefining the Manhattan area just south of Houston Street. Its use fueled not by city planning schemes but by word-of-mouth recommendations, the area soon grew to become a world-class center for artistic creation indeed, the largest urban artists' colony ever in America-let alone the world. Richard Kostelanetz's Artists' SoHo not only examines why the artists came and how they accomplished what they did but also delves into the lives and works of some of the most creative personalities who lived there during that period, including Nam June Paik, Robert Wilson, Meredith Monk, Richard Foreman, Hannah Wilke, George Macuinas, and Alan Suicide. Gallerists followed the artists in fashioning themselves, their homes, their buildings, and even their streets into transiently prominent exhibition and performance spaces. SoHo pioneer Richard Kostelanetz's extensively researched intimate history is framed within a personal memoir that unearths myriad perspectives: social and cultural history, the changing rules for residency and ownership, the ethos of the community, the physical layouts of the lofts, the types of art produced, venues that opened and closed, the daily rhythm, and the gradual invasion of "new people." Artists' SoHo also explores how and why this fertile bohemia couldn't last forever. As wealthier people paid higher prices, galleries left, younger artists settled elsewhere, and the neighborhood became a "SoHo Mall" of trendy stores and restaurants. Compelling and often humorous, Artists' SoHo provides an analysis of a remarkable neighborhood that transformed the art and culture of New York City over the past five decades.

arts music and photography,composition,education and reference,home and garden,history and criticism,music,theory composition and performance, John Cage: Writer: Selected Texts, No American composer has written about his work as brilliantly and wittily as John Cage (1912-1992), one of the great avant-garde figures of the twentieth century. An essential part of his legacy are the pieces gathered herein, which span over fifty years of Cagean thought and creativity. Generally unknown, they demonstrate Cage's skill in using language to provide insight into his own work as well as the music of Schoenberg, Boulez, and Stockhausen. In addition, he discusses collaborators and contemporaries like Merce Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg, Marshall McLuhan, and David Tudor.Also included are several provocative lectures and-of crucial importance to an appreciation of his music-Cage's notes outlining the proper performance of his compositions. Other pieces tackle his experiments with prepared piano; the idea of "chance" in compositions; how he writes using the I Ching; and his ideas about art, film, and dance. In "A Composer's Confessions," Cage maligns the "essentially conservative character of musical attitudes today" and declares why he is "not interested in large audiences or the preservation of my work for posterity." In "An Autobiographical Statement," he offers earnest reflections upon his own life, career, and quest for self-fulfillment.Originally appearing in magazines, journals, catalogs, concert programs, and records, these pieces here acquire the permanence they deserve. Taken together, they reveal a lesser-known but pivota
