Something exciting and colorful is coming to the Seattle Art Museum this Thursday. Chicago based artist Nick Cave — not to be confused with the wicked Australian troubador — will be showcasing an illuminous gallery that will feature what he calls “soundsuits” at his Meet Me at the Center of the Earth exhibit.
Soundsuits are beings made from material such as potholders, spinning tops, sequins, and various fabrics. Often reflecting bright and bold African Caribbean garments, the pieces will be showcased starting Thursday, March 10th through June 5th.
The opening, which is already sold out, will showcase the first performance of the Soundsuits dancing throughout the first nightʻs celebration. SAM has partnered with dancers from Spectrum, a Seattle dance theater group, and the Cornish College of the Arts to help bring Cave’s Soundsuits to life.
The performance is not just a one time affair; they will have scheduled performances throughout their tenure at the city’s biggest art gallery. If you are not in Seattle, be sure to keep an eye out for Nick Cave. During this time last year, the exhibit was showcased at The Fowler museum in Los Angeles. It will be only a matter of time for the exhibit to hit the road again and parade into your neighborhood.
For more information, be sure to visit SAM for details.
