Nick Cave’s Soundsuits at the Boston ICA

To see more photos and videos of Nick Cave’s colorful creations, explore the Institute of Contemporary Art location page.

Chicago-based artist Nick Cave constructs his signature “Soundsuits”—vivid, noise-making costumes—from discarded and rediscovered materials. The suits’ varied and whimsical forms directly reflect Cave’s training as a dancer and are often used in dance performances.

The Soundsuits’ origins are darker than their vibrant colors might suggest. Cave created his first suit in 1992 as a response to the Rodney King beating. He told the Washington Post, “I built this sort of suit of armor, and by putting it on, I realized that I could a make a sound from moving in it. It made me think of ideas around protest, and how we should be a voice and speak louder.”

Cave’s suits, along with several freestanding sculptures and paintings, are on display at the Institute of Contemporary Art through May 4.

Oh my gosh

John James Chalon - Les Dames Artistes, ca. 1822
Tumblr salutes you, lady in the green dress painting ~artistic~ buff naked dudes.

I just couldn’t stop thinking about this fan artist foremother, so I had to draw her. She’s so high-minded, with her buff naked dude from a David painting, I decided to show her painting something less serious:


I am v. honoured to have been told I influenced this in any way

Butts are awesome!

By Katharina Grosse, these huge, beautiful sculptural installations utilise their environment by being painted in situ making each set-up entirely unique. I feel torn between thinking of a martian landscape, or a Lovecraftian fifth dimension. 

Love these Katharina shots of her One Floor Up More Highly show in our Building 5.

Incredible!
