As The Air Moves Back From You

January 28 - February 22, 2015

Reception with Sculptural Performance:
Friday, January 30, 7-9 pm

The Fosdick-Nelson Gallery is proud to present a performance installation created by D. Chase Angier of Angier Performance Works, in collaboration with Luftwerk, The Tiffany Mills Company, Kristi Spessard, Laurel Jay Carpenter, The Alfred Performers, Andrew Deutsch, John Laprade and Marketa Fantova. Each week is a new experience, intricately interweaving 8,000 pounds of rice, evocative movement and sensuous designs into slowly shifting landscapes.

Over the course of the exhibition, the installation will change and new performances will take place in the gallery each week. See below for performance times and special events accompanying the exhibition. All events are free and open to the public.

Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature administered by the Cattaraugus County Arts Council, private donations and the following programs within Alfred University: Marlin Miller Dance Residency Program, Miller Endowment for Excellence in the Arts, School of Art and Design, Fosdick-Nelson Gallery, Institute for Electronic Arts, Electronic Integrated Arts, Herrick Gallman Fund and Division of Performing Arts.
