Jackson Mac Low was a pioneer of chance-based poetry and composition. Along with other Fluxus artists such as Dick Higgins and George Brecht, he attended John Cage’s revolutionary composition course at the New School for Social Research in New York (1957-59). Exploring the realm of possibilities provided by the Cagean model, Mac Low applied the concept of indeterminacy to produce poetry and performance, which combined drawings with a complex layering of language. Mac Low performed at The Kitchen several times during the 1970s and, in 1980, he collaborated with Higgins in a night of music and performances.
