Nick Cave's Heard•NY at New York's Grand Central Station

Posted By on Wed, Apr 3, 2013 at 6:30 AM

One of the best April Fools' jokes I heard on Monday was that Nick Cave the artist had revealed that he was also Nick Cave the musician. That would certainly clear up some outstanding confusion.

It was just last year that Artist Nick Cave came to Lipscomb and gave an oddly restrained talk after getting an uncomfortably out-of-touch introduction. (And just a month ago that A.N.C. and M.N.C. met IRL.) So forgive me for getting a little meta-Cavey over here, but the Heard•NY performance that just wrapped in New York's Grand Central Terminal seems just as worthy of our Country Life readers' attention as any other art event we can think of. The site-specific performance was Cave's first public project in New York, and featured a herd of thirty colorful, raffia-covered "horses" that broke into dance periodically. Watch a video report of the piece from The New York Times after the jump.
