Meet the Artist: Nick Cave

June 2013

 

 

Spoiler alert: There's a reason we picked a Denver Art Museum exhibit for Top Art Show in this year's Top of the Town (on newsstands now). Programs like Becoming Van Gogh and Yves Saint Laurent: A Retrospective keep us coming back to the museum time and again. The DAM's latest opening is no exception: Nick Cave: Sojourn is a multisensory experience unlike any other. The Chicago-based contemporary artist is best known for his Soundsuits—more than 20 of which are on display in this exhibit—which can only be described as other-worldly wearable textile sculptures. Click through for a behind-the-scenes peek at the show (soundsuits, mixed-media sculptures, and more) with commentary from Cave. And be sure to go see it (through September 22): Cave's imagination is a whimsical, talented land that begs you to immerse yourself.
