Nick Cave works between the visual and performing arts through a wide range of media, including sculpture, installation, video, sound, and performance. His solo exhibitions have taken place in the United States, France, Africa, Denmark, Asia, South America, and the Caribbean. Cave, who has been described as a Renaissance artist, received his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art and his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute. He has completed multiple self-described “Dream Projects” throughout the United States, Europe, and Africa — including HEARD.NY in New York’s Grand Central Terminal. Cave has received awards from Creative Capital Grants, the Andy Warhol Foundation, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, Artadia, United States Artists, the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, the Illinois Arts Council, among others. He has been described as a Renaissance artist and says of himself “I have found my middle and now … working toward what I am leaving behind.”
