A New Creative Focus on View at the Denver Art Museum
On June 17 artdaily.org reviewed Nick Cave’s (Fashion) "multi-sensory, immersive installation," Sojourn, at the Denver Art Museum (DAM). The show signals deviation from Cave’s famous figure-based Soundsuits, showcasing a series of new works based on abstract and animal forms. “Sojourn represents a significant departure in Nick Cave’s career, introducing monumentally scaled work that will offer visitors an immersive experience and new narratives in Cave’s oeuvre,” explains Polly and Mark Addison Associate Curator William Morrow. On the same day, Milwaukee magazine writer Abby Callard highlighted Cave’s “strangely arresting Soundsuits” on view in the Milwaukee Art Museum exhibition 30 Americans. “The collection of art by 31 contemporary African American artists is stunning, but the compilation of colorful suits scattered throughout the space provide the most compelling and curious perspective,” she says. Sojourn runs through September 22. 30 Americans runs through September 8.
