UNTIL is American artist Nick Cave’s most ambitious project to date. Comprised of thousands of found objects which together make us feel as if we have entered a rich sensory tapestry and stepped directly inside the belly of one of Cave’s iconic Soundsuits. Nick Cave’s first Soundsuit, made out of twigs, was a direct response to the Rodney King beating, a visual image about social justice that was both brutal and empowering. Just as the violence around the Rodney King beating was the impetus to Cave’s early work, the death of men such as Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown drives his new imagery for Until. For Cave’s Carriageworks installation, Until — a play on the phrase ‘innocent until proven guilty’, or in this case ‘guilty until proven innocent’  he addresses issues of gun violence, gun control policy, race relations, and gender politics in America and its resonance across the world. Presented by Carriageworks in partnership with MASS MOCA and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
