Taking visitors on a journey through the artist’s imagination, Nick Cave: Sojourn will feature approximately 40 new artworks including more than 20 new Soundsuits. Cave’s multi-sensory, immersive installation will transport visitors to a magical world of color, texture, sound, and movement.

In the exhibition, visitors will see a passageway constructed of thousands of buttons; large-scale, sculptural objects made out of found objects; more than 20 new Soundsuits; and new short films.

Described as textiles-meet-modern dance, Cave’s colorful, larger-than-life sculptures have been displayed in museums and many of the Soundsuits have been worn by Cave and other professional dancers as part of performances. The Soundsuits consist of a wide variety of materials and are designed to make noise as the wearer moves. www.denverartmuseum.org
