The Outcome

Thursday, November 29, 2018
6:00–9:00 p.m.

The Outcome is a party to celebrate the creative process and the closing of the fall 2018 art residency at McColl Center. Come through and see what current and alumni artists have been working on during and after their art residencies.

Artist-in-residence Alice Gosti will debut two elements of her project, Where is home. The first is a video installation based on the idea of culturally specific gestures, created with students from FOCUS Garinger (a non-traditional expeditionary learning program connected to Garinger High School). The second is a continued series of physical vignettes based on her research on Italian-American immigration history, including elements of the interviews she has been doing with local immigrants while in residency here in Charlotte.

Artist-in-residence Tom Stanley will preview new works to be included in an upcoming Hodges Taylor exhibition, en route to here.

Artists-in-residence Juan Dolhare, Liz Miller, and Antoine Williams will also be in their studios to talk about their time in Charlotte and show new work and/or works-in-progress.

In a celebration of imagination and interdisciplinary creativity, Jonathan Prichard (2014)—whose work is exhibited in our current exhibition, New Works / Alumni One—will perform, with his group Sinergismo in our first-floor Dickson Gallery. The performance is from their work Gismodyssey: An Odd-A-See and is inspired by dazzle camouflage, a World War I naval tactic where ships were painted not to hide from the enemy, but to disorient and confuse them. This piece explores how abstract, black and white paintings on the panel can be used as costume and/or shield for characters.

In the Alumni Artist Lounge on our second floor, Nelson Morales (2017) will debut and sign copies of his new photo book, Musas Muxe—a project he worked on during his residency here at McColl Center last year. The book addresses an exploration of the cultural, sexual, and personal identity of the artist and of the muxe community in Oaxaca, México. Morales’ work has been featured the New York Times, Aperture, and Vogue Italia.

DJ Flock of Slagles will be spinning hip hop and groove classics all night, we’ll have beer and wine for sale (McColl Center Members receive a complimentary drink during The Outcome), and admission is free for everyone.

McColl Center is a stop on the Uptown Crawl this evening, too. The Uptown Crawl features free admission to galleries and museums along Tryon Street in Uptown Charlotte.

Free parking is available on N. Tryon St. after 6:00 p.m. and in the lot at the Hal Marshall Center across from the Charlotte Ballet at 700 N. Tryon St.
