The Master of Wearable Sculpture Comes to New York



For nearly 20 years, Nick Cave—the American sculptor/performance artist, not the Aussie rocker/writer—has been crafting vibrant "soundsuits" from flea-market finds (sequins, hair, feathers, an abacus). With a pair of concurrent solo shows, "For Now" and "Ever-After," Cave, who sometimes dances wearing the suits, is arranging his creations into circuslike vignettes, bringing them to otherworldly life.

"For Now", September 10 to October 22 at Mary Boone Gallery, 541 W. 24th Street, www.maryboonegallery.com

"Ever-After", September 8 to October 8 at Jack Shainman Gallery, www.jackshainman.com
