An exhibition of photographs by Bleddyn Butcher, tracking Nick Cave's creative career from the apoplectic extravagance of The Birthday Party to the calmer disquiet of 2013's Push The Sky Away via snapshots, spot lit visions and sumptuous, theatrical portraits. It mixes the candid and uncanny, the spontaneous and the patiently staged, and includes eyeball encounters with Cave's baddest lieutenants, men, who for the most part, have long since burned their own bridges down. A splendid testament to two brilliant careers. The accompanying book published by Allen & Unwin will be available to purchase in our Rizzoli Bookshop. Please be advised that from 18-21 September inclusive, entrance to the exhibition will be via the Great Arch entrance on Victoria Embankment only.
