Nick Cave: Forothermore

With a wealth of images and commentary, this is the essential career survey of Cave's socially responsive art

The definitive volume on the ever-evolving and shape-shifting work of the Chicago-based artist, Nick Cave: Forothermore highlights the way Cave’s practice has shifted and continues to shift in response to our history and current moment of cultural crisis. Including several new, never-before-seen works, the book shows an artist at the height of his power.
Addressing topics ranging from art history to social justice, Nick Cave: Forothermore includes essays from Naomi Beckwith, Romi Crawford, Antwaun Sargent, Malik Gaines, Krista Thompson and Meida Teresa McNeal. Punctuating these contributions are interviews with the artist exploring his life, work and teaching practice, as well as a roundtable discussion between Cave and dancer Damita Jo Freeman, musician Nona Hendryx and publisher Linda Johnson Rice on Cave's art and influences, as well as pivotal cultural phenomena from Soul Train to Ebony magazine. Nick Cave: Forothermore reveals the way art, music, fashion and performance can help us envision a more just future.
Nick Cave (born 1959) is an artist and educator working between the visual and performing arts through a wide range of mediums, including sculpture, installation, video, sound and performance. Cave is well known for his Soundsuits, sculptural forms based on the scale of his body, initially created in direct response to the police beating of Rodney King in 1991. Cave has had major exhibitions at MASS MoCA (2016), Cranbrook Art Museum (2015), Saint Louis Art Museum (2014–15), ICA Boston (2014), Denver Art Museum (2013), Seattle Art Museum (2011) and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (2009), among others. Cave lives and works in Chicago.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Vanity Fair

Madison Reid

His hundreds of subsequent Soundsuits, which produce a cacophony of noise when combined with movement, contain infinite contradictions: obfuscation and hypervisibility, refuge and escape—somber reminders of injustice and joyful imaginings of a more utopic future.

Antwaun Sargent on Nick Cave in 'Forothermore’

Antwaun Sargent on Nick Cave in 'Forothermore’

Featured spreads are from Nick Cave: Forothermore, the superb catalog to the critically-acclaimed mid-career survey on view now through October 2, 2022, at the MCA Chicago. “In Cave’s art, material realities simultaneously encompass journeys of Black oppression and excellence,” Antwaun Sargent writes. “His reconstitution of found materials that are often uncommon in contemporary fashion design—but which are found in histories of costume and craft—is an experiment in exceeding traditions as a way of extending the possibilities of identity. It’s a re-stylization of the conditions of the present into an aesthetic politic that provides a space of hope for the Black body. It is a constructed space where the Black body can transcend the violence prescribed to Black identity with glamour, authority and noise. Cave’s is a language that is built on the past, operates from the present, but thrusts the imagination far into the future.” continue to blog
