{Re}HAPPENING Call for Artists


Here are the details from the {Re}HAPPENING website:

CALL FOR ARTISTS

Letter of Intent is due on December 21, 2016

Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center announces an opportunity for artists to participate in the 2017 {Re}HAPPENING on Saturday March 25 between 3pm-10pm at Camp Rockmont in Black Mountain, NC.

We invite artists to propose projects that reflect the innovative spirit of Black Mountain College. Artists are encouraged to take risks and demonstrate elements of process, spontaneity, experimentation, collaboration, and audience participation. Each selected artist project will receive a $250 honorarium.

ARTISTS OF ALL GENRES AND DISCIPLINES are encouraged to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI). The LOI should be a brief one-page outline that describes the project, includes participating artists and how the project connects to the Black Mountain College legacy.

The LOI deadline is December 21, 2016 – please email LOIs to rehappening@blackmountaincollege.org

About {Re}HAPPENINGSince 2010, BMCM+AC has hosted the {Re}HAPPENING inspired by John Cage’s 1952 Theatre Piece No. 1, an unscripted performance considered by many to be the first Happening in North America.

The {Re}HAPPENING is a day long event at the historic campus of Black Mountain College, known as Lake Eden – 15 minutes from Asheville. It is part art event, part fundraiser and part community instigator serving as platform for contemporary artists to share their response to the vital legacy of Black Mountain College by returning to its original site in the present day.

General admission brings in hundreds of visitors annually. In addition to providing a forum for regional artists and an accessible, immersive, educational experience for attendees, every year the event is a community collaboration between local businesses and arts organizations.
