For this week’s #ArtThursday, we head to Boston, Massachusetts. Chicago-based artist Nick Cave constructs his signature “Soundsuits”—vivid, noise-making costumes—from discarded and rediscovered materials. The suits’ varied and whimsical forms directly reflect Cave’s training as a dancer and are often used in dance performances.

The Soundsuits’ origins are darker than their vibrant colors might suggest. Cave created his first suit in 1992 as a response to the Rodney King beating. He told the Washington Post, “I built this sort of suit of armor, and by putting it on, I realized that I could a make a sound from moving in it. It made me think of ideas around protest, and how we should be a voice and speak louder.” Cave’s suits, along with several freestanding sculptures and paintings, are on display at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art through May 4. To see more photos and videos of Cave’s colorful creations, tap the blue location text above.
