Nick Cave: The Exhibition. Finally it's here! I heard about this exhibition happening in Melbourne last year and I've been waiting patiently for it to arrive in Brisbane. It arrived to QPAC and opened yesterday in QPAC's Tony Gould gallery space. I was there before the doors had even opened. Yeah I know I'm kind of tragic. But hey I wasn't the only one! The exhibition explores “behind the scenes” of iconic Australian musician, songwriter, artist, author Nick Cave. It features displays of original lyrics, notebooks, diaries, artwork, photography, and rare and previously unreleased film footage. A couple of the highlights include the original manuscript of Nick Cave’s book, And The Ass Saw The Angel, and the selection of flyers, fanzines and posters dating back from the late 1970s to the present. This touring exhibition is drawn from over 800 items generously donated by Nick Cave to the Performing Arts Collection. It’s brilliant! It’s free admission! And I highly recommend it! You can view the online documentary here if you’re interested.
