Okay, prepared to be inspired.
One of our favorite contemporary artists right now is Nick Cave. He has a current exhibit Until at The Momentary in Bentonville, AR near our Art Feeds HQ- and it's inspiring our shoes off these days. This printable helps students imagine their own versions of Nick Cave's Soundsuits.
The Soundsuit hides the shape of the wearer hiding gender, race and class, which lets the wearer move without judgement, Nick Cave uses glitter, fringe, crochet, buttons, found objects and more to create these Soundsuits. Aren't they spectacular?
