Nick Cave at Mary Boone Gallery 541 west 24th street.
Nick Cave’s Soundsuits are amongst other things made out of sticks, trumpets,stuffed animals and twigs. Other typical materials include dyed human hair, sisal, plastic buttons, beads, sequins, and feathers. They are called sound suits because of the sound they make when you wear them, because yes you can actually wear them!
“masking and creating a second skin that conceals race, gender, and class, forcing the viewer to look without judgment.”
It was a good day, Nick Cave was my favorite which you can probably tell. I am looking forward to visit smaller galleries and studios in New York and discover artists that I haven’t heard of. Let me know if you have suggestions!
