Jacquelyn Gleisner (Painting ’10) interviews Nick Cave (Fiber ’89) about his new exhibition Until at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams (MASS MoCA) for Art21. They talked about how his work stimulates questions about equality in America.
Cave said, “As I was developing this project, the Michael Brown incident happened in Ferguson, Missouri; Freddie Gray went down, and then Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, and Christian Taylor. I was in the studio, thinking, ‘What the hell is going on?’ All of these events made me wonder whether there is racism in heaven, and that really was the beginning of the show.”
The exhibition is open until September 3, 2017.
