Nick Cave: Activism Through Art

Nick Cave is a performer, dancer, singer and artist who uses his gift to bring awareness to a number of issues in America. Gun control policy, gun violence, gender politics and race relations are view of the issues Cave brings awareness to through his artwork. Soundsuits that Cave designed that do not show a persons race, gender or sexuality. These suits were designed so people could not be judged. Cave’s Until artwork was inspired by the murder of numerous unarmed Black men by police officers.

Cave is a messenger. Cave is not just sitting by doing nothing, when you do nothing you are apart of the problem. Cave’s messages displayed through his artwork bridge a gap between art and activism.
