In The Color Is, Nick Cave and Jack Cave invite you to experience a multimedia extravaganza combining art, fashion, and performance. Hosted inside the Roundhouse at the DuSable Museum of African American History and commissioned to coincide with Nick Cave: Forothermore at the MCA Chicago, The Color Is pays tribute to Black excellence and innovation throughout history, drawing on influences including the Ebony Fashion Fair, ball culture, and the iconic Emerald City sequence from the 1978 film The Wiz. Chicago-based performers and community members will model around eighty looks—each garment a unique, couture art object—designed by brothers and artists Nick and Jack Cave, while special musical guests perform at the center of the space. Both joyous and critical, The Color Is celebrates the way art, fashion, and performance can help us envision a more just future.
