Quote of the Week: Cage Space Tokyo

This is Roger McDonald, co-founder and deputy director of Arts Initiative Tokyo, describing the city:

    This sense of physical impermanence makes Tokyo something like a huge, ever-evolving John Cage composition, whirling itself through chance procedures and the interventions of its inhabitants/users.

That’s from McDonald’s essay “A Huge, Ever-Growing, Pulsating Brain that Rules from the Empty Center of a City Called Tokyo,” from the recently published book Art Space Tokyo: An Intimate Guide to the Tokyo Art World, an excellent window on the city’s art scenes as expressed through interviews with curators, artists, and other cultural figures, as well as essays and neighborhood maps.
