Turning Points | How Nick Cave Discovered His Purpose as an Artist



I think I'm an artist with a civic responsibility;
that's really the foundation of my platform. My name is Nick Cave. I'm a visual artist working between dance,
installation and performance. I partnered with the Alvin Ailey School of
Dance and with a number of local musicians in New York City to develop a project that
would be housed in Grand Central Station. So I came up with Heard, which was this performance
with a group of horses that would be grazing and moving about the station. Just the joy that it brought to people's faces,
it really made me understand my purpose in life and how I wanted to use art as this vehicle
for change.
