Nick Cave at JACK SHAINMAN GALLERY: THE SCHOOL May 17th, 2014 - September 17th, 2014
Posted 6/24/14
There are a handful of stellar institutions that one might plan to visit for a weekend away from the summer heat of New York City. The newest, and one of the most impressive is The School in Kinderhook, New York. Kinderhook is a picturesque town just north of Hudson, which itself is an established attraction for New York City dwellers looking for gourmet food, an eclectic variety of antiques, and a vibrant gallery scene.

A Real Gem of a Summer Show   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Radcliffe Bailey, Nick Cave, Susana Solano, Leslie Wayne at Jack Shainman Gallery 20th Street July 11th, 2013 - August 16th, 2013

The frantic pace and manic energy of New York City life seem to slacken when urbanites abandon their concrete enclaves for wide-open spaces and greener pastures.

The artist Nick Cave has a little something for everybody. Do you like pastel colors and shiny objects? He’s got something for you. How about costume, performance and show? There’s some of that too. Ritual? Craftsmanship? Consumerism? Check.  There are so many cultural references sewn, glued and drilled onto Cave’s sculptures that they explode with social baggage.

Nick Cave at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts March 28th, 2009 - July 5th, 2009
Posted 4/5/09
Some might say that Chicago artist Nick Cave’s “Soundsuits” are fashion costumes or perhaps dance properties relegated to the category of craft. But upon visiting the work currently on exhibit at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, I immediately recognized Cave's Soundsuits as vigorous objects of empowerment. The exhibition features mixed-media, wearable sculptures, named for the auditory effect of the sculptures when worn. Throughout the show, the eye is flooded by the complexity of Cave’s decorative glee: hundr... [more]
