Telfair Museums adds Nick Cave soundsuit to permanent collection

SAVANNAH, GA.- Telfair Museums announced it has acquired a Nick Cave (American, b. 1959) soundsuit for its permanent collection. The soundsuit came to Savannah as part of the museum’s recent Nick Cave exhibition and adds to Telfair’s growing number of works by African American artists.

Cave’s soundsuits can operate as a second skin, meant to conceal race, gender, and class, thereby protecting and transforming one’s identity in an attempt to eliminate prejudices. This acquisition will be on view in Complex Uncertainties at the Jepson Center through the end of 2017.

Lisa Grove, Director/CEO of Telfair Museums, said Cave’s work was well received during the exhibition. “Given the response from visitors, we determined that this was an important work to acquire. This is the largest purchase for the modern and contemporary collection in Telfair Museums’ history and we are thrilled to be able to share Nick Cave’s work and important message with many future generations of Savannahians and visitors from around the world.”

The work was purchased with funds provided by Mr. and Mrs. Robert M. Levy, Susan Willetts and Alan K. Pritz, Cathy and Philip Solomons, Diane and Ed Schmults, Pamela L. and Peter S. Voss, Jan and Lawrence Dorman, Friends of African American Arts, Dr. William Goldiner, Dr. David M. Hillenbrand, Rosaleen Roxburgh, Ted and Linda Ruby, Marti and Austin Sullivan, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Young, and the Jack W. Lindsay Acquisition Endowment Fund.
