Co-organized by the Menil Collection and the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, Silence takes a multimedia approach to understanding the ways contemporary visual and sonic artists such as John Cage, Joseph Beuys, Doris Salcedo, and Christian Marclay have practiced withdrawal as a response to the complications and multiplicities of contemporary life. AICA member and Menil curator of modern and contemporary art Toby Kamps provides an essay, provocatively titled “(…)” that connects the artistic use of silence with protest, mourning, and memorialization.

Headquartered in New York, AICA-USA's membership comprises over 400 critics, curators, scholars, and art historians working throughout the United States.
