Nick Cave‘s soundsuits and objects, created with upcycled materials, explore both identity and social issues while entertaining in their vibrancy. In a new exhibition at Orlando Museum of Art, “New Cave: Feat.,” a survey of work mostly created within the past decade is displayed. Cave was featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 20.
“Along with broadcasting an increasingly urgent call for equity, Cave wants his art to spark viewers’ imaginations and aspirations,” the museum says. “This exhibition’s title, Feat., refers to the exceedingly hard work that goes into attaining success (it takes, for example, roughly seven hours to hand-sew just one square foot of a button soundsuit). It also plays on how talent is often listed in promotional materials—an appropriate nod to Music City and its creative community. Through this immersive installation, Cave hopes to provide a transformative place where your narrative can be featured and your dreams can soar.”
