In the Denver Art Museum, Jenna Madison, manager of studio and art programs, introduced a new exhibit named, “Nick Cave Sojourn” Nick Cave was an artist who specialized in fiber arts and all of his artwork was hand done and created out of used objects from the thrift store or from the flea market. He can look at the objects at the thrift shop and know immediately what belongs in the artworks. His creative director is Bob Fouse.

Nick cave creates suits and manikins of all kinds, but he was going to use them for sculpture originally when he saw he could wear them. Nick Cave does performances with his fantastical creations. Almost each of his suits weighs 30 pounds and is very hard to see through because of all the objects. The suits are also made because of the sound they make when the suits are doing performances. Some of his suits are not made to worn because the suit is just too heavy.

Nick focuses on not just suits, but other artworks as well, such as paintings. His artworks are too made of used objects and are hand made like the suits and manikins. Nick has seven brothers and is born in Missouri. Nick Cave’s exhibit “sojourn” is not only an exhibit, but a walk through a whole another world.
