Not that we really need a reason, but we’re considering popping in to New York to catch artist Nick Cave‘s sumptuous, career-spanning show at the Guggenheim, before it closes on April 10.
Featured, are some rarely seen early work, along side the installations and Soundsuit costumes for which he has become so well known.
The show’s title, Forothermore, is “a new word that reflects the artist’s lifelong commitment to creating space for those who feel marginalized by dominant society and culture—especially working-class communities and queer people of color.
According to the Guggenheim:
Installed in the museum’s tower galleries, the survey’s thematic sections are titled “What It Was,” “What It Is,” and “What It Shall Be”, inspired by an old African American greeting. The exhibition will unfold as a tripartite story, with each chapter looking into the past, present, and future of Cave’s practice.
