Tramway, Glasgow: Nick Cave – Until

Nick Cave: Until

Until 24th November

Glasgow’s Tramway presents the first exhibition in Europe by established American contemporary artist and activist Nick Cave. Until is his largest and most ambitious project to date comprising an array of found materials, often found in craft, kitsch, or folk contexts, forming meticulously-crafted sculptures that evoke the outfits and celebrations of Mardi Gras parades, drag performance, and shamanistic or ritual costumes.

In the main gallery, a massive immersive installation, made up of thousands of found objects, makes viewers feel as if they have entered a rich sensory tapestry, with alluring kinetics and sumptuous materiality, giving way to stark images of gun violence, racial profiling and gender politics that currently divide the US.
