Cynthia Greig News

Several of Cynthia Greig's "Nature Morte" photographs and videos will be included in the upcoming exhibition titled, "Nothing to Say" which opens this Friday at The University of Michigan's Jean Paul Slusser Gallery in Ann Arbor.

Curated by fellow artist Kathleen McShane, the exhibition is concerned with examining nothingness, quiet, less is more, what is there and not there, and nonsense. The title comes from John Cage who commented, "I have nothing to say, and I’m saying it" when referring to his 4 minutes and 33 seconds of silence performance. The exhibition suggests that "nothing" can actually evoke "everything," or at least an unexpected fullness (as in Cage’s silence).
