Elsewhere IS

Greensboro, North Carolina. Performed here during a tour in September with the SPORE mobile gallery. Elsewhere utilizes a former three-story antique shop or perhaps more accurately coined, hoarder menagerie owned by a deceased woman named Gloria. Seven years ago her grandson transformed this reliquary into a living museum and artist residency. Nothing leaves. Nothing enters. Nothing like it anywhere. These photos are mostly from the third floor which is only open during special events.

Perhaps a part of Gloria persists? To learn more about Elsewhere click here.

  1. I've been curious about Elsewhere/ wanted to do a residency for the last couple summers but haven't been able to pull the trigger. What's your impression? pretty neat?

  2. I was inspired by the space, materials, vibe and much of the work. Imagining that a residency there would be incredibly interesting. However there are no showers, the rooms are REALLY dusty and when I was there the majority of staff and artists were fresh out of undergrad with a median age of 23. But it is an impressive project and worth experiencing.
