Jackson Mac Low

Jackson Mac Low (Chicago, US, 1922 – New York, US, 2004). Jackson Mac Low research and experiments on poetry are immense. Being a former apprentice of John Cage, he engaged in several chance operations techniques and applied them to his compositions throughout his entire career. The chaos surrounding his drawings is illusionary, as their structure is invisible. Noticeably, Mac Low argued with George Maciunas, through their mutual engagement in Fluxus, over how the movement should be defined and represented, displaying Mac Low’s devotion to words and forms. Some of it’s most emblematic representations can be found, transposed as edition, within Francesco Conz’s collection.
