Free Admission

The Board of Trustees of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) invites you to the 2024 Stephen Fleischman Lectureship featuring Nick Cave and Bob Faust in conversation about their multi-disciplinary creative space Facility. This event will be held in the Museum Lecture Hall on Saturday, April 13, 2024, from 6–7 PM.

Run by artists Nick Cave and Bob Faust, Facility is a hub for artists, artisans, designers, and architects. Located in Chicago, the space hosts a myriad of pop-up special projects such as exhibitions, performances, and educational opportunities. Similar to The Shop at MMoCA, both spaces offer interactive and inclusive contemporary art experiences focused on the communities they serve. Nick Cave and Bob Faust’s exhibition AMENDS was on display in The Shop in Summer 2021.

Nick Cave is an artist and educator, working between the visual and performing arts through a wide range of mediums including sculpture, installation, video, sound, and performance. Cave is best known for his Soundsuits, sculptural forms based on the scale of his body, initially created in direct response to the police beating of Rodney King in 1991. Bob Faust creates visual, visceral, and contextual art experiences that inspire and/or instigate action. He is the principal and creative director for Faust, a cultural branding and communications studio as well as the studio/special projects director for Nick Cave, where he collaborates on both exhibition design and performance works.

Admission to this event is free. Advance registration is now closed. Limited seating will be available on a first-come first-served basis.
