Brad Pitt And Nick Cave Make Their Art Debut At A Museum In Finland

Hollywood actor Brad Pitt and Australian musician Nick Cave are ready to showcase their lesser known talents to the world. Their artwork will be displayed at the Sara Hildén Art Museum in Tampere, Finland. Brad Pitt will showcase his plaster and bronze sculptures, while Nick Cave will display a ceramic series. This is the first public exhibition of their artwork.

The museum was originally supposed to display work by British artist Thomas Houseago. At his request, it will now also feature art by his friends, Pitt and Cave. The showcase is called ‘WE’ – a nod to the “shared nature of the works and their makers”, even though they are individually authored. Pitt and Cave created these pieces during an ongoing conversation with Houseago.

An Instagram post shared by the museum says, “WE is an open-ended concept that encourages new ways to think about art-making and the role of the solitary artist, which are less about ideas born exclusively to a single author.”

“To me, it’s all about self reflection,” Brad Pitt told YLE, Finland’s national broadcasting company. “Where have I gone wrong in my relationships, where have I misstepped, where am I complicit? For me, it was born out of ownership of really what I call a radical inventory of self, getting really brutally honest with me and taking account of those I may have hurt, or moments I have just gotten wrong.”

The exhibition opened on September 18, and art conoisseurs and fans can enjoy the three artists’ work until January 15, 2020.
