Nick Cave lecture

Cave, a Fulton native, returned home to discuss his art and reshaping the contemporary art landscape. He merges the words of visual and performing arts through a wide range of mediums, such as sculpture, mixed-media pieces, video, installation, sound and performance. 

His art has been displayed in museums around the world, as well as in everyday places, such as New York City subway stations. The New York Times describes Cave as "the most joyful, critical artist in America."
