    The Nasher Museum welcomes New York dancer and choreographer Gwen Welliver, faculty member of American Dance Festival. She and her composition lab students will present three informal showings of work inspired by Olafur Eliasson's large-scale interactive installation, 'The uncertain museum.' Eliasson's work explores the relationship between spectator and object. The dancers will move inside 'The uncertain museum' and interact with patterns of projected light and shadow that visitors will see from outside the space. In between dances, visitors will have the chance to step inside the installation. Photos below by J Caldwell.
