Art for Justice: A Roundtable with Nick Cave, Bob Faust, Gabrielle Lyon, and Quintin Williams



“On 24 September 2020, artists Nick Cave and Bob Faust joined representatives of Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Human Rights and Illinois Humanities, grantees of the Art for Justice Fund, to kick off EXPO Chicago‘s EXHIBITION Weekend (25–27 September 2020), with a virtual roundtable on issues relating to mass incarceration, freedom, advocacy, and structural inequity.

The conversation, which has been transcribed and edited in partnership with Ocula Magazine, took place in honour of a limited-edition print produced by Cave and Faust, commissioned by EXPO Chicago for the last edition of the exposition. Following a tradition of artist-made prints for the Chicago International Art Exposition at Navy Pier during the 1980s and 90s, the work draws upon iconic motifs found in Cave’s practice and sculptural ‘Soundsuits’.”
