Nick Cave: Sojourn
In the exhibition, visitors will see a passageway constructed of thousands of buttons; large-scale, sculptural objects made out of found objects; more than 20 new Soundsuits; and new short films.
Described as textiles-meet-modern dance, Cave’s colorful, larger-than-life sculptures have been displayed in museums and many of the Soundsuits have been worn by Cave and other professional dancers as part of performances. The Soundsuits consist of a wide variety of materials and are designed to make noise as the wearer moves.
Nick Cave: Sojourn will be on view through September 22, 2013. This ticketed exhibition is free for members.
Soundsuits Performance Auditions
A collaborative live performance is also planned. Cave will hold an open call for the general public on February 22, as part of the museum’s final Friday Untitled #54 (Turf) event. Cave is asking interested participants to bring their rhythm and spirit to the audition for a chance to participate in a Soundsuit performance. No dance training required. Cave will then choose 10–15 people to join in a performance on June 28, as part of the final Friday Untitled #58 (Getup) event at the DAM. The performance will involve local dance groups, musicians and DJs. Registration for the open call closed February 4, when all the time slots were filled.
