Our guide to local arts and culture this autumn

Driven by development, the Triangle is changing, which is keenly felt in the arts.

New spaces are opening as old ones are closing. Emerging organizations are helping artists and audiences navigate this unsteady terrain, while long-running mainstays are adapting their missions to stay relevant. Whether you're new to the area or have been here for years, it can be hard to keep up.

That's why, in our 2014 fall arts and culture guide, we explore some of the shifts in the local landscape, from the consolidation of indie choreographers and theater personnel shakeups to the trends of simulcasts in cinemas and pop-up galleries in the visual arts.

Of course, we also offer our picks, selected by our expert critics, for the most promising dance performances, comedy showcases, plays, readings, college football games, movies, art shows and concerts you can look forward to this fall.

Such a guide could never be comprehensive; this one doesn't even touch on the many local fall festivals, from Hopscotch and SPARKcon to the West End Poetry Festival and the Carrboro Film Festival (we'll catch up in regular coverage). Thankfully, that's one thing about the Triangle that hasn't changed—there's still an overwhelming variety of things to do, see and enjoy.
