Map in Action: Nick Cave takes Detroit

IMG_0188In a historic citywide art and dance series, Nick Cave took Detroit by storm. The map room at the exhibit hosted at the Cranbrook Art Museum demonstrates the range of Nick Cave’s work and the impact of his efforts across the city. Photoshoots, community workshops, dance labs, education programs, and community performances – Nick Cave did it all in the city that gave him a place to dream and create.

Nick Cave presents an excellent example of artistic work, typically cloistered inside exhibit halls limited to those with the time and mobility, that is presented for the people to see, touch, and experience in their neighborhoods and community spaces.
