Fluorescent, furry "Soundsuits" come to the Art Museum this weekend | Arts & Culture
CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Chicago artist Nick Cave will make his presence known in a big way when "Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth" debuts at the Cincinnati Art Museum this weekend.
This 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.
Friday January 20, 2012, the Soundsuits will be in motion in a special performance during a Member’s Opening at 7 p.m. 300 members have already rsvp’d. Nick Cave will give a lecture at 7:30pm in the FATH auditorium.
The exhibit opens to the public the next day, Saturday January 21, and runs through April 29, 2012.
