Nick Cave | Sojourn | Denver Art Museum

Taking visitors on a journey through the artist’s imagination, Nick Cave: Sojourn features approximately 40 new artworks including 24 new Soundsuits. Cave’s multi-sensory, immersive installation will transport visitors to a magical world of color, texture, sound and movement. Famous for his Soundsuits, wearable sculptures for the human body, Cave’s mixed media exhibit Sojourn will be at the Denver Art Museum (DAM) through September 22.


Visitors will see a passageway constructed of thousands of buttons; large-scale, sculptural objects made out of found objects; and new short films. New works from Cave include a sculpture inspired by a baptismal font and an archway constructed of thousands of buttons.


In conjunction with Nick Cave: Sojourn, the DAM invited the artist to transform its Precourt Family Discovery Hall into an immersive, interactive environment called Second Skin. Visitors can decorate felt silhouettes and 3-D mannequins inspired by Cave’s artwork while a video projection in the space brings Cave’s Soundsuit performances to life.


The exhibition includes 10 large-scale, 3-D sculptural objects, more than 20 new Soundsuits and several new short films. Representing abstract ideas, the suits manage to convey a subtle environmental and social statement about the excesses of modern-day society.
