Nick Cave: Until

Nick Cave: Until

Tramway presents the first exhibition in Europe of established contemporary artist and activist Nick Cave.  

In Tramway's main gallery, Cave will exhibit a massive immersive installation made up of thousands of found objects which make viewers feel as if they have entered a rich sensory tapestry, akin to stepping directly inside the belly of one of his iconic Soundsuits. Though opulent and celebratory, the exhibition remains firmly connected to the political impetus behind Cave’s ongoing body of work. Until is a space where alluring kinetics and sumptuous materiality gives way to stark images, referencing complex issues of gun violence, racial profiling and gender politics that currently divide the United States of America, and the extension of these matters in communities around the world. As such, Until echoes the function of the Soundsuits, positioning the black body as simultaneously vulnerable and resolutely present. 

Until will function as an alternative town hall, becoming a gathering space for community events, performance and discussion throughout the duration of the exhibition. ‘I view this work as an elaborate community forum, as much as a work of sculpture’ notes Cave.

Please note, the exhibition is closed on Mondays.
