Artist Nick Cave will be speaking at Northeastern University on Friday, October 12, 2018, at 1:30PM in Blackman Auditorium. Nick Cave will be joined in conversation by Northeastern faculty Scott Edmiston, Department of Theatre and Sarah Kanouse, Department of Art & Design.
Drawing on his training as both a visual artist and dancer, Nick Cave works in a wide range of mediums including sculpture, installation, performance, and video. Cave’s Soundsuits highlight the artist’s oeuvre, meticulously handcrafted from found objects, recycled remnants, and discarded materials. They exist as both sculptures in themselves and (when occupied by a dancer), activated forms referencing ritual attire from around the world, responding to the globalization of cultural identity.
The inaugural Dean’s Distinguished Lecture has been organized by the College of Arts, Media and Design Office of the Dean, in collaboration with the Northeastern School of Architecture and the CAMD Faculty Fellows.
