Storrs Lecture Hall

The College of Arts + Architecture presents a lecture by choreographer and hybrid performance artist Alice Gosti , in conjunction with the Storrs Gallery presentation of Material Deviance in Contemporary American Culture, October 14-November 15.

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. 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.
