DETROIT – An artist known for his colorful fabric “Soundsuits” will open an exhibit in Metro Detroit next week.

Nick Cave, an American sculptor and performance artist, opens his five-month-long exhibit “Here Hear” at the Cranbrook Art Museum June 20.

Ahead of the opening, the artist posted a trippy preview video on YouTube, showing his Soundsuits dancing — and standing still — at various iconic spots around Detroit.

The video features some high-energy movement, as well as eerie shots near urban decay.

His show opening in June will be his largest yet, spanning 7,000-square-feet in the museum. According to Cranbrook’s website, the exhibit will feature the Soundsuits, tapestry work, sculptures and some video work.

There’s also a space for performance art.

Cave will also be hosting events in and around Detroit throughout the summer and fall.

His time in Detroit will wrap up with a a piece called “Figure This: Detroit” to be held at the Masonic Temple Oct. 4.
