One exhibit, one night, one theme: Nick Cave smoking. "Lethal Amounts Presents Nick Cave Smoking" is a collection of photographs of goth's sharpest dressed man doing just that. Inspired by a blog post Lethal Amounts ran last year, and curated by gallery founder Danny Fuentes with Andi Harriman and Hannah Nance Partlow, the display features some 40 color and black-and-white images dating back to the late 1970s by 15 photographers. Shots by the likes of Ed Colver, Dave Corio, Polly Borland and David Arnoff capture the singer indulging in his favorite vice, whether he's onstage, surrounded by books or sitting in a bathtub. For fans not going to Cave's sold-out show at the Ace Theatre tonight, this will be like a secondhand thrill, or secondhand smoke, but without the health risks.
