Iconic Australian musician, songwriter and author Nick Cave is now the subject of his own exhibition.
Go behind the music and into Nick’s imagination and the sources of his unique vision through original lyrics, notebooks, artwork, photography and books. There will also be objects from the musician’s own library and office, and rare and previously unavailable video and documentary footage.
This exhibition is an insightful and playful journey through his connection with Melbourne, London, Berlin, Sao Paulo and Brighton, England. It explores the many phases of Nick Cave’s career including his work with The Boys Next Door, The Birthday Party, The Bad Seeds and Grinderman.
“This has been a revealing and rewarding experience. Much of this stuff has sat around in boxes for years and the process of ‘excavating’ it has been many things – moving, disturbing, inspiring and downright terrifying.” - Nick Cave
Created and designed by the Arts Centre, Melbourne, this exhibition draws from over 800 items generously donated by Nick Cave.
