Nick Cave at the Fowler Museum UCLA

Nick Cave (not the musician) at the Fowler Museum UCLA
Really happy Nick Cave landed at UCLA. I missed his show while it was at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts,SF. Will be seeing this next week and also visiting UCLA's art department.
Hopefully will get some additional pics....
Also This show is a great one to bring kids to.

"Whether Nick Cave's efforts qualify as fashion, body art or sculpture ... they fall squarely under the heading of Must Be Seen to Be Believed." —Roberta Smith, New York Times

"Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth," on display at the Fowler Museum at UCLA from Jan. 10 through May 30, 2010, is the largest presentation of work by the Chicago-based artist, featuring 35 of his "Soundsuits" — multilayered, mixed-media sculptures named for the sounds made when the "suits" are performed.

Nick Cave received his B.F.A. from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1982 and his M.F.A. from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1989. He studied fiber art but is committed to a broad spectrum of interests and disciplines. Cave is an associate professor and chairman of the fashion department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he teaches in the fiber arts program. He has led such workshops as "Extending the Body: Experiments in Clothing" and has designed, manufactured and marketed his own line of men's and women's clothing. He has received numerous awards, including a United States Artists Fellowship (2006) and a Joyce Award (2006), and his work has appeared in solo and group exhibitions across the U.S. and Europe.
"Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth" has been organized by the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco.
The Fowler Museum at UCLA is one of the country's most respected institutions devoted to exploring the arts and cultures of Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and the Americas. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. and Thursday from noon to 8 p.m.; it is closed Monday and Tuesday. The Fowler, part of the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture, is located in the north part of the UCLA campus. Admission is free. Parking is available for a maximum of $10 in Lot 4.
