Nick Cave (The Artist-Not the Bad Seed)

*Tonight* there will be a free and open to the public performance by multidisciplinary artist, Nick Cave at The Savannah College of Art and Design. Cave is an artist and educator (Professor at The School of the Art Institute) known around the world for his "Soundsuit"creations made from a multitude of found objects-including metal toys, plastic,  fabric, and dyed human hair. He crosses his background in dance with art to create performance pieces in which his Soundsuits are animated by the movement of the dancers who wear them. More in this NYT article. The performance is tonight- Saturday, November 14 at 8 p.m., Hamilton Hall, 522 Indian St., Savannah, Ga. 

mixed media
