café for contemporary art

Merce Cunningham

Posted in art, dance, music by tyler057 on July 29, 2009

I am sure everyone is blogging about this sort of stuff these days.   But I just found out that Merce Cunningham has passed and was sincerely shocked.  Taking people and circumstances for what they might be and embracing chance procedure what Cunningham and his partner John Cage contributed to contemporary arts and culture is so huge.  If you never had a chance to know who he was it might be nice to take a peak around and learn about a tremendously beautiful contributor to what might be/is.

I learned about his passing by a vid here on the nytimes site.  His dance company’s site is here.
