Affiliate Museums

The mission of the Mississippi Museum of Art Affiliate Network, which consists of approximately 30 not-for-profit organizations in Mississippi, is to increase the engagement of the state’s many communities in the visual arts by utilizing the Museum’s most significant resource—artworks from the Mississippi Museum of Art’s Permanent Collection. The Affiliate Network Program is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

Gallery Talk | Lesley Raybon

Friday, January 24, 2020

11:30 AM to 12:00 PM

Begins in The Museum Foyer

Stitch, zip, button, sparkle! In this gallery talk, Leslie Raybon will share her experience as a costume designer and respond to Nick Cave's collection of soundsuits in Nick Cave: Feat. Lesley Raybon is the Director of Dance Costume at Belhaven University. She was previously the Resident Costume Designer at New Stage Theatre for eight years. During that time she has designed and built hundreds of costumes of various periods and styles. She is also a puppeteer with Puppet Arts Theatre, barista at Starbucks, wife and mother. Nick Cave's human-shaped sculptures—called soundsuits because of the noise made when they move—began as a response to the beating of Rodney King by policemen in Los Angeles more than 25 years ago. As an African-American man, Cave felt particularly vulnerable after the incident, so he formed a type of armor that protected him from profiling by concealing race, gender, and class. Along with broadcasting an increasingly urgent call for equity, Cave wants his art to spark viewers’ imaginations and aspirations.
