The 9th Annual ReVIEWING Black Mountain College will have a thematic focus on ideas and practices related to Process + Performance, but proposals on any theme related to Black Mountain College and its legacy are encouraged and will be considered. Furthermore, in the spirit of BMC, the conference challenges disciplinary boundaries, and therefore performances, multi-media panel proposals, and workshops are welcome.

In conjunction with the 9th Annual ReVIEWING conference, Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center introduces two new dynamic efforts:

•   The ACTIVE ARCHIVE is a stream of programs that pairs the museum’s extensive collection with contemporary artists, curators, and cultural thinkers. It launches with an exhibition featuring the museum’s permanent collection curated by interdisciplinary artist Martha McDonald.

•   The BMCM+AC Performance Initiative is a multi-part project that offers new dimensions to the museum’s ambitious visual art exhibitions. It launches with the southeast premiere of Black Mountain Songs, an interdisciplinary collaboration performed by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus and curated by Bryce Dessner and Richard Reed Parry.

The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center preserves and continues the legacy of educational and artistic innovation of Black Mountain College. We achieve our mission through collection, conservation, and educational activities including exhibitions, publications, and public programs. For more information, visit or call 828-350-8484.
