Nox Contemporary to present dance and live performance

by lovedancemoreguest

Nox Contemporary is inaugurating a new event this year entitled Alternative Genres.  It will feature a selection of contemporary performance art and video pieces taking up the entire gallery. Performances will be one night only on July 20 and 27 from 7 to 10 pm and video work will run from July 20 through August 3. Nox is excited to feature “work from a variety of performance and video artists including Salt Lake’s own Trent Alvey”.

Says Nox director John Sproul, “performance and video art are a vital part of the contemporary art dialogue and because there are limited opportunities to exhibit these art forms in Salt Lake City, we feel this is something that we need to do.”

Alternative Genres this year will feature works from artists such as Trent Alvey, Jenevieve Hubbard, Aniko Saffran and Brian Patterson. Video art will take up the entrance gallery space and is viewable from 6-10 pm on performance nights and during regular gallery hours from July 20 to August 3. One night only performance pieces will be featured on July 20 and 27 from 7-10 pm.

Admission is free and open to the public.
