Interdisciplinary artist Nick Cave challenges conventions on what it means to be a visual artist, a performer, a crafter, and an educator. Cave is well known for his Soundsuits, full-body sized sculptures, often worn as costumes and performed in. Soundsuits conceal the wearer’s identity leaving the viewer with no indication of race, gender, or age.

Cave’s Soundsuits are made of everything from collected and repurposed buttons, to wooden sticks, beaded baskets, doilies and sequined fabric. The Anderson Collection at Stanford University is proud to present an exhibition of eight Soundsuits along with three video works by Cave, as well as a recently completed documentary on the artist, titled Here. Visitors are invited to experience these marvelous creations on view in the Wisch Family Gallery and throughout the first floor of the museum from September 14, 2016 – August 14, 2017.

Open Wed-Mon 11am – 5pm, Thursdays until 8pm; admission is free. CLOSED TUESDAY.

The exhibition is organized by the Anderson Collection. The museum gratefully acknowledges support from the generosity of museum members and the Harry W. and Mary Margaret Anderson Charitable Foundation.
