Materia – A Temporal Collaboration at Three Atypical Sites 

When: Fri., March 31, 6-8 p.m. and Sat., April 1, 2-5 p.m. 2017
Price: free

We don't even pretend to know what the hell is going on with this MFA exhibition for UNC professor elin o'Hara slavick's graduate seminar, and that's why we're intrigued. The title says it all: it's a mystery parceled out with peculiar specificity in time and space. From six to eight Friday evening and from two to five Saturday afternoon, three groups of five students each will display linked exhibits, all concerned with different kinds of materiality, at three different venues that will require more than a little sleuthing to find. (Start at the Guest Room Project Space website below.) Guest Room, at 106 Glass House Lane in Carrboro, presents Dystopia/Dematerialization, in which five artists deconstruct their practices and mediums. The Old Shed, on Gary Road in Carrboro, presents Heterotopia/Materialization, which focuses on place and site. And Utopia/Rematerialization, an installation comprising many spoons, comes to a space with the charmingly ad hoc name of Apartment Gallery, which is in Chapel Hill's Strafford Apartments. Exactly what kind of experiences will you find there, if you find the places at all? It's immaterial. Looking and discovering should be half the fun. —Brian Howe

Correction: This post originally misstated the exhibit's closing date. It is Saturday, not Sunday.
