T Magazine Tours Nick Cave’s South-side Home

New York Times writer Tina Yablonsky tours Professor Nick Cave’s (Fashion) South-Side apartment in the October 7 issue of T Magazine, surveying a “few thousand of his favorite things.” Describing his carefully curated collection of art and objects, Cave explains, “I’ve made decisions to surround myself with what I believe to be my destiny. It’s important for me to wake up to the thing I do.” Yablonsky characterizes Cave’s insatiable creative curiosity and tremendous work ethic, noting “This month alone he will present 50 sculptures and eight short films in France, at Lille 3000.” But despite his success, Cave sees his home as a sanctuary from the art world. “I’m very shy,” he explains. “An opening is probably my biggest nightmare. The loft provides an escape.”
