A Little History: Nick Cave & Cohorts, 1981 - 2013
3 – 28 September 2014
Daily 10.00-18.00 (last entry 17.30)
Great Arch Hall, South Wing
An exhibition of photographs by Bleddyn Butcher, tracking Nick Cave’s creative career from the apoplectic extravagance of The Birthday Party to the calmer disquiet of 2013’s Push The Sky Away via snapshots, spot lit visions and sumptuous, theatrical portraits. It mixes the candid and uncanny, the spontaneous and the patiently staged, and includes eyeball encounters with Cave’s baddest lieutenants, men, who for the most part, have long since burned their own bridges down. A splendid testament to two brilliant careers.
The accompanying book published by Allen & Unwin will be available to purchase in our Rizzoli Bookshop.
An opportunity to learn more about the iconic musician in this talk with photographer Bleddyn Butcher, who has documented Cave's career for more than 30 years. Butcher will make a rare appearance to speak about the evolution of his creative partnership with the much-mythologised Cave. Following his talk Butcher will be signing copies of A Little History in the Rizzoli Bookshop.
