“Artist Nick Cave’s gorgeous creations are a must-see at the DAM....” – Michael Paglia, Westword
“Sojourn will delight audiences of all ages with its sophisticated blend of color and whimsy." – Westword
“Nick Cave: Sojourn is a multisensory experience unlike any other.... Cave’s imagination is a whimsical, talented land that begs you to immerse yourself.”– Daliah Singer, 5280
Taking visitors on a journey through the artist’s imagination, Nick Cave: Sojourn will feature approximately 40 new artworks including more than 20 new Soundsuits. Cave’s multi-sensory, immersive installation will transport visitors to a magical world of color, texture, sound, and movement.
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.
