Tramway opens the first exhibition in Europe of contemporary artist Nick Cave
Nick Cave UNTIL at Tramway.

GLASGOW.- Until is presented at Tramway and is Cave’s largest and most ambitious project to date, organized by MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts and co-produced with Carriageworks, Sydney and Crystal Bridges/The Momentary, Arkansas. Until is made up of thousands of found objects and millions of beads, creating a rich sensory tapestry, akin to stepping directly inside the belly of one of his iconic Soundsuits.

The sheer volume of material that comprises this project is astounding — 16,000 wind spinners; millions of beads; thousands of ceramic objects; more than 10 miles of crystals; 24 chandeliers; 1 crocodile; and 17 cast-iron lawn jockeys (racist souvenirs from America’s Jim Crow era).

Tramway’s vast main gallery is filled with a cacophonous, sculptural field of kinetic ornaments leading to a large-scale crystal cloud, topped by a sculptural garden inspired by the artist’s question “is there racism in heaven,” before ending with a series of beaded murals hand-woven with thousands of colourful beads, and embedded messages within.

Nick Cave is an artist, educator and foremost a messenger, working between the visual and performing arts through a wide range of mediums including sculpture, installation, video, sound and performance. Born in Missouri in 1959, Cave studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, and trained with the renowned Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. Public collections include the Auckland Art Gallery, Brooklyn Museum (New York), Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art (Arkansas); the Detroit Institute of Arts (Michigan), the High Museum of Art (Georgia), the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, D.C.); the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne); the Norton Museum of Art (Florida); the Museum of Modern Art (New York). The Birmingham Museum of Art (Alabama)l the De Young Museum (California); the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (New York); the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (Texas); the Orlando Museum of Art (Florida); the Smithsonian Institution (Washington, D.C.0; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (California), among others. Cave is Professor and Chairman of the Fashion Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Recent major exhibitions include The Let Go (2018) at Park Avenue Armory, New York and Rescue (2017) at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fins Arts, Philadelphia.
