Nick Cave is a faculty member at the School of the Art Institute di Chicago, and a performer, dancer, artist and sculptor. His works, whether they be wearable sculptures exhibited in ritual dances in art galleries, in parks and plazas, or objects like the series of chairs recently shown at the Jack Shainman gallery in New York, are virtuosic combinations of contrasting materials. Bags, straw hats, paper or flowers, fabric covered in coloured beads, tops, colourful fur patchwork and cloth animals can all be found in his pieces

In una dimensione tra scultura, arte performativa e danza contemporanea, Cave non pone limite alla sua fantasia.
In a dimension between sculpture, performance art and contemporary dance, Cave poses no limit to his imagination.

His fantasy knows no limits, nurtured by a particular executive talent and unusual ability to put everyday objects, along with almost pyrotechnic effects, together seamlessly. His fantastical, wearable sculptures come alive, animated by his talent as a dancer, during a performance that walks the line between primitive and futuristic.

L’artista stesso definisce le sue opere “uno spettacolo bizzarro e psichedelico”, dotato di una grande carica di energia.
The artist himself calls his works "a bizarre and psychedelic show ", with a great deal of stamina.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
