Peabody Essex Museum presents FreePort [No. 006]: Nick Cave an exhibition on view March 2, 2013 to May 27.

Fashion designer and dancer, Nick Cave, is world renowned for his category-bending Soundsuits. Equal parts sculpture, costume, and performance, Cave’s life-size creations take on a larger-than-life dimension. Constructed from a colorful bricolage of materials including twigs, sisal, beads, sequins and feathers, Cave’s Soundsuits are faceless and other-worldly, obscuring the wearer’s identity, gender and class. For the installation at PEM, three never-before-seen Soundsuits will make their debut along with an immersive film projection.
