Three Year Retrospective of Elsewhere Museum's Southern Constellation Residency Series 

When: Oct. 8-Nov. 7 2015
Price: free



ALLCOTT GALLERY AT UNC—I'll never forget my first trip to Elsewhere, but nobody does. In a charmingly derelict three-story building in downtown Greensboro, I saw a tornadic sculpture of doll heads and wandered through room-size dioramas, as if Pee-wee's Playhouse and Grey Gardens had spawned an art gallery. The artist-run nonprofit occupies a former thrift store, where artists-in-residence use leftover inventory to continually reshape an excitingly permissive museum of site-specific art. (Artist Lee Deigaard brought in horses.) Now Elsewhere infiltrates the Triangle with a pair of shows at Artspace in Raleigh and UNC-Chapel Hill's Allcott Gallery. The former, Expanding the Constellation, opened Sept. 4 and runs through Oct. 24; the latter opens Oct. 8 and closes Nov. 7. The Allcott exhibit documents three years of work from Elsewhere's residency series, and the opening reception features a performance by the Experimental Music Study Group, interpreting Andrew Raffo Dewar's fascinating graphic scores—built, of course, from materials in Elsewhere's collection. Don't think you'll be saving yourself a trip to the Triad, though. Afterward, you'll want to go more than ever. 6–8 p.m., free, 115 S. Columbia St., Chapel Hill, 919-962-2015, —Brian Howe
