Chicago-based artists Nick Cave and Bob Faust will present the community-based, interactive project titled “AMENDS” at The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) this summer, the organization announced.
Cave and Faust are internationally known artists and collaborators that created the three-
component project in 2020 after the murder of George Floyd by a police officer in Minneapolis, according to a press release from MMoCA, and the ultimate goal of AMENDS is to lay the groundwork for the eradication of racism. The exhibit will run from June 19-Oct. 24.
Cave is an artist, educator, and foremost a messenger, working between the visual and performing arts through a wide range of mediums including sculpture, installation, video, sound, and performance. Faust is the principal and creative director for Faust, a cultural branding and communications studio in Chicago.
“At this moment, we as individuals, and we as Facility, in collaboration with the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, must continue to be an active part in the eradication of racism. We are honored and grateful for the opportunity to deepen this work through MMoCA and the Madison communities,” Cave said in a statement.
AMENDS will bring together the artists, community leaders in the Madison area
and the state, and members of the public to complete the three components of the project. The exhibition will open on Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.
