Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth

January 21, 2012 - April 29, 2012


Nick CaveThis exhibition is the largest scale presentation of the work of Chicago-based artist Nick Cave to date.· Cave combines aspects of sculpture, fashion design, dance and video art in his larger-than-life ‘Soundsuits’.


These full body, form fitting ‘suits’ are layered and textured with metal, plastic, found objects, and colorfully dyed human hair designed to rattle, swish, and resonate in rhythm with the movements of the wearer, usually Cave himself.



Generous support for this exhibition is provided by:
