31 March - 27 June 2010. Considered one of the most influential composers of the 20th century, Morton Feldam was born in New York in 1926. As a pioneer of indeterminate music, a development associated with the experimental New York School of composers, his contemporaries included John Cage. Feldman, who found inspiration in the paintings of the Abstract Expressionists, wrote pieces such as 'Rothko Chapel', commissioned on the death of Mark Rothko in 1971. This exhibition comprises music scores, record covers and photographs. It also includes works by 14 artists associated with Feldman, including Willem de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Piet Mondrian, Jackson Pollock and Cy Twombly.
