London's Anthony D'Offay Gallery was the location of a recent multimedia show involving the collaboration of three highly influential, yet controversial, contemporary American artists: composer John Cage, dancer-choreographer Merce Cunningham, and painter Jasper Johns. Issued in conjunction with the exhibition, this catalog contains reproductions of Cage's musical manuscripts and Johns's paintings along with photographs of Cunningham's lithe movements. It documents their influence upon one another, celebrating close to 50 years of friendship. Yet the addition of Susan Sontag's whimsical verses, essays by art critics, captivating portrait photographs, and detailed chronologies fail to illuminate the complex muddle of ideas. Because of their significance in the avant-garde world, special collections may want this. Otherwise, this is not a necessary purchase.
