On the 1st Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a limited-edition print by Nick Cave. Born in Fulton, Missouri in 1959, his “Soundsuits” act as costumes, made in reaction to the police beating of Rodney King in 1992, meant to empower the person wearing them through concealing their race and gender. His works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Indianapolis Museum of Art, among others. Today's "Untitled" is from Exquisite Corpse, a suite of eighteen lithographs by artists at the Tamarind Institute.
