Play for Today: Cornelius Cardew Conference

This two-day symposium on Cardew, involving participants from the worlds of art and music, is co-organised with The Drawing Room , and coincides with an exhibition at their east London gallery. Through talks, performances and panel discussions, thesymposium aims to remake rather than repeat the legacy of Cardew, examining the questions and contradictions of his practice for their contemporary relevance.

The first day of the symposium includes contributions from a wide range of participants, including John Tilbury (musician and Cardew collaborator and biographer), Frederic Rzewski (composer and virtuoso pianist), Grant Watson (curator at MuHKA, Antwerp), Adrian Rifkin (Professor of Art Writing, Goldsmiths College) and artist-duo the Otolith Group.
