Burt and Deedee McMurtry Lecture: Nick Cave

Thursday, March 9, 2017 6:30PM
Bing Concert Hall

Seating for Benefactors and Above:
The Anderson Collection at Stanford University is excited to present artist Nick Cave as the speaker for its third annual Burt and Deedee McMurtry Lecture. Interdisciplinary artist Nick Cave challenges conventions on what it means to be a visual artist, a performer, a crafter, and an educator. Cave is well known for his Soundsuits, full-body sized sculptures, often worn as costumes and for performances. Soundsuits conceal the wearer’s identity leaving the viewer with no indication of race, gender, or age. Cave’s Soundsuits are made with a variety of different materials from collected and repurposed buttons, to wooden sticks, and sequins.

Cave is the focus of a temporary exhibition at the Anderson Collection at Stanford University, on view in the Wisch Family Gallery and throughout the first floor of the museum through August 14, 2017. The Burt and Deedee McMurtry Lecture is presented in partnership with Stanford Live.
