LAURI STALLINGS | glo
Lauri Stallings is founding artist of glo, a collaborative and artist-driven platform, whose vitality is defined by an uncommon appetite for making spaces outside traditional venues into destinations for radical, celebrated contemporary performance.
Stallings is a former member of Hubbard St. Dance Chicago, and a 2012 Rome Prize nominee from American Academy of Arts for her physical experiments. A 2011 Bolgliasco (Italy) Fellow, Stallings physical installations and exhibitions for spaces outside traditional venues seeks to inform singular worlds where artists and public become mutually informing elements. Stallings asphalt perspective is often realized in migrational public choirs. Stallings garnered a 2008 Benois de la Danse (Moscow) nomination for “big”, in collaboration with world hip-hop star Big Boi of OUTkast.
Stallings created Atlanta’s inaugural Off the Edge Festival in 2011, for Historic Rialto Center for the Arts. And Stallings deepened her curatorial vision with Tanz Farm: a performance anthology, in 2012. Stallings is Artist-in-Residence of Kennesaw State University Department of Dance
