NICK CAVE
CREATIVE TEAM

Stranger Than Kindness was curated and designed in close collaboration with Nick Cave. The exhibition is a hands-on, tactile experience, a merge of biography, autobiography, and fiction, in which the space and exhibition design are an extension of the many narrative forms and elements contained within Cave’s own life and writings.

The exhibition was first presented at The Black Diamond in Copenhagen, and was developed and designed by Christina Back (Royal Danish library) and Janine Barrand (Arts Centre Melbourne). It was curated and produced by the Royal Danish library in collaboration with the Australian Music Vault at Arts Centre Melbourne.

'When the Royal Danish library contacted me with the idea of a 'Nick Cave Exhibition' I was reluctant to get involved. I am not nostalgic by nature and I had no time for a trip down Memory lane. But the team at the library were clearly serious people with a wonderful infectious energy and they drew me in! we created an exhibition that is unlike anything that has gone before, its feet rooted in the past but that reaches into the uncertain future. 'In the end we were able to put together an exhibition of extraordinary detail that commented on the fragile and vulnerable nature of identity. I am so proud to be a part of this unique and unorthodox exhibition — a shattered history we called Stranger Than Kindness.' - Nick Cave.

The Montreal exhibition is presented and produced by Victor Shiffman (Workers of Art) as a co-production with Le Festival International de Jazz de Montreal and Evenko.
