Alice Gosti: Material Deviance in Contemporary American Culture
October 14 – November 15
Performances: October 17 & 18, 6-8 pm
Material Deviance in Contemporary American Culture takes a sideways look at our object-based reality. Reflecting stuff-centered culture back to ourselves, this dream state passes through shame, nostalgia, patriotism, and the weight of inheritance. Choreographer and hybrid performance artist Alice Gosti asks, Do objects imbued with so much of our worth start to take over and take on a life of their own?
Gosti is an Italian-American choreographer and performance artist based in Seattle and Italy. In 2016 she received the prestigious National Dance Project from the New England Foundation for the Arts for the production and touring of Material Deviance in Contemporary American Culture.
The presentation of Alice Gosti is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Storrs Gallery is open Monday-Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

About the CoA+A Gallery System
The mission of the College of Arts + Architecture gallery system is to create lively forums in which the curious encounter the work of global, regional, and local artists through diverse media and dynamic exchanges that are nourished by the intellectual and creative life of the university. Our programming will echo crossovers of the visual arts, architecture, music, theatre, and dance inherent to the College of Arts + Architecture at UNC Charlotte. We seek to provide a haven for experimentation, to invigorate the environments we occupy, and to amplify the means to engage art and design in our community.
