A Conversation with Nick Cave
Moderated by Edward Goldman

Nick Cave is an American artist working with a variety of media in the space between the visual and performing arts, including sculpture, installation, performance, and video, all at the intersection of art and fashion. He is best known for his series of Soundsuits, colorful and fantastic creations that function as large-scale static sculptures as well as wearable camouflage. The works tell stories through dance and movement while concealing all aspects of gender, race and class. Cave also spearheads the Graduate Program in the Department of Fashion at the Art Institute of Chicago, and is an Alvin Ailey-trained dancer.
