Artist Jorge Macchi and composer Edgardo Rudnitzky speak with critic and curator Inés Katzenstein about their collaborative practice, the impact of John Cage on their work, and Cage’s legacy on experimental and inter-disciplinary practices in Buenos Aires and beyond.


Inés Katzenstein is the director of the Art Department at the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella and serves on the editorial board of the journal Otra Parte: Artes y Letras. She received her MA from the Bard Center for Curatorial Studies, has organized exhibitions of the works of Liliana Porter and David Lamelas, among others. She edited Listen, Here, Now! Argentine Art of the 1960s: Writings of the Avant-Garde, published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and has written about contemporary art widely.


Jorge Macchi is a visual artist. Working in an improvisational yet rigorous mode, Macchi has made art in response to his environment since the early 1990s when he left Argentina to live in Europe, and adopted Paris, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and London as temporary residences. Since 1998, he has lived in Buenos Aires where he makes work that attends to the conceptual qualities of materials and defies categorization.


Edgardo Rudnitzky is a composer, sound artist, and percussionist. He was a professor of Music at the National University of Argentina in La Plata, and the musical director of the Dance Theater Group of the University of Buenos Aires, among other positions. Collaborating with visual artists, Rudnitzky has made installations about sonic memory and how to make sound visible. Born in Argentina, Rudnitzky lives and works in Berlin.


In 2005 Edgardo Rudnitzky and Jorge Macchi represented Argentina in the Venice Biennial.


This event is made possible with support from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, and presented in conjunction with the exhibition Notations: The Cage Effect Today, on view at the Hunter College Times Square Gallery at 450 West 41st Street through April 21.
