MASS MoCA curator Denise Markonish first approached artist Nick Cave about seven years ago to see if he’d be willing to take on the Massachusetts art museum’s largest exhibition space. The size of a football field.
Markonish, in a virtual press preview on Thursday, said she was familiar with Cave’s Soundsuits, his wearable sculptures, and she’d also encountered his (black-faced lawn) jockeys and was curious to see more of the breadth of his work.
“I sort of let Nick stew and simmer,” she says, “and went back a year later and he presented the idea for ‘Until’.”
