Professor Nick Cave Makes the Cover of "Michigan Avenue Magazine"

SAIC is home to acclaimed faculty from all over the globe, and the Fashion Department's Nick Cave is certainly one of these recognizable names. A favorite among critics, collectors, and students alike, Cave was recently featured in one of his groundbreaking soundsuits on the cover of Michigan Avenue magazine, a Chicago-based publication that explores the crosshairs of creativity and luxury. In its annual "Art of the City" list, the magazine put together "a true celebration of the exceptional talent and diversity of our nation’s artists" and chose Cave to represent the Windy City.

"A must-have for any contemporary art museum or top-level collector, Nick Cave’s instantly recognizable soundsuits—brightly colored wearable sculptures adorned with everything from buttons and hair to toys and other found objects have made the 57-year-old Chair of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Fashion Design department one of the most sought-after artists in the world," writes Kyle Macmillan.
