A Fascinating Trip to the Museum of Contemporary Art

Hi, this is Leslie Harris, and on Sunday, my family and I took a trip to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. They have an exhibit called Forothermore, a career spanning exhibit by internationally acclaimed, Chicago artist Nick Cave.

In a video interview, Nick Cave talks about his art combining the beauty that he has experienced in his life, combined with the ugliness of racism and homophobia.

His work is visually stunning. It’s beautiful, sometimes tragic, sometimes whimsical, and often uplifting. If you zoom in on this image, you will see that the branches are covered with birds, and the body is covered with flowers.

Nick Cave: Forothermore is running now through October 2nd at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. Find out more HERE
