A selection of works by Assistant Professor of Dance, Jen Guy Metcalf, will be presented at Motion Pictures—A Photographic Exhibition. During her time with the Elon in LA program, Metcalf collaborated with local professional artists, faculty, students and alumni to create dance photography and film projects. The intention of her photographic work was to capture expressive movement in a variety of environments around Los Angeles. Emphasis was placed on investigating spaces with dancers and making physical site-specific choices.

The seed for this creative research sprung from text by Camille LeFevre who stated that site-specific work must come from the "site's unique cultural matrix of characteristics, whether architectural, historical, political, economic, social and/or environmental." This creative process was also utilized in film work were the dancers embodied Metcalf's choreographic interpretation of multiple locations from downtown Los Angeles to the beaches of Malibu.

This exhibit includes images from film projects created by Metcalf and the Director of Elon in LA, J McMerty. Their award-winning dance films have been screened in nearly thirty film festivals around the United States, Ireland, Scotland, Amsterdam, Turkey and Sweden. 

Exhibition continues until Thursday, October 20. Sponsored by Elon in Los Angeles and the Dance Program in the Department of Performing Arts
