Nick Cave is an artist and educator working between the visual and performing arts through a wide range of mediums including sculpture, installation, video, sound, and performance. He is best known for his Soundsuits, sculptural forms based on the scale of his body, initially created in direct response to the police beating of Rodney King in 1991. Throughout his practice, Cave has created spaces of memorial, underscoring the anxiety of severe trauma brought on by catastrophic loss. Cave reminds us, however, that while there may be despair, there remains space for hope and renewal.
