Nick Cave has come home to Cranbrook.

The artist, fabric sculptor, and dancer grew up in central Missouri.

In 1989, Cave got a master’s degree from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills.

Since then, Nick Cave has exhibited his work all over the U.S. and internationally, from New York to Denmark, Chicago to Italy.

He has become famous for his sculptures called Soundsuits; some are fragile totems, while others are wildly creative performance suits designed for dance and movement.

Cave works primarily with discarded materials, and describes his work as “renegotiating and reintroducing [these materials] back into the world as this other sort of hybrid.”

Nick Cave will soon open an exhibition of his work at the Cranbrook Art Museum. It’s part of a seven-month-long performance series he’s been doing, using Detroit as his backdrop.
