Nick Cave Comes to CIA 

When: Tue., Feb. 15 2011

Part tribal raiments, part urban ritual wear, the Soundsuits made by renowned Chicago fiber artist Nick Cave are fantastical, wearable sculptures, meticulously hand-crafted from beads, sequins, hair, metal, and assorted flea-market finds. Cooler still: When worn as dance costumes, the outfits rattle and resonate in concert with the dancer's movements. The resulting performances are crazy-beautiful sensory assaults that have found their way into festivals and museums across the country and Europe. Tonight, Cave will make a stop at the Cleveland Institute of Art to talk about his work. While no actual performance is on tap, Cave is expected to bring some Soundsuit components as visual aids; plus, how often do you have a chance to hang with a dude widely acclaimed as one of today's most important artists? Cave's free presentation takes place at 7 p.m. in the Aitken Auditorium. The Cleveland Institute of Art is at 11141 East Blvd. For more information, visit cia.edu. — Cicora
