Art enthusiasts across the city of Charlotte have made #BechtlerByNight the premiere art event to look forward to the third Friday of every month. This Friday, May 20, the Bechtler will partner with Martha Connerton of Kinetic Works and Eco Fab Trash Couture to present "Danstallations", a series of choreographed dances inspired by the bold designs found in the fourth-floor exhibition The House That Modernism Built.
Starting at 6:30 p.m., each dance performance will occur periodically throughout the evening, and will be based on individual works such as Alberto Giacometti's Seated Woman, Buckminster Fuller's Geodesic Dome or Harry Bertoia's Sunburst. Iconic music of the era will set the tone for each performance, with hits from Nancy Sinatra, The Rolling Stones, 5th Dimension, John Cage and the Beatles all contributing.
Flavia Lovatelli, director of Eco Fab Trash Couture, will create 60's-style fashion and headwear for the event using recycled materials.
