Opening Reception for "Question Everything! The Women of Black Mountain College" at BMCM+AC on January 24th
Question Everything! The Women of Black Mountain College
Curated by Kate Averett and Alice Sebrell
January 24 – April 25, 2020
Opening Reception Friday, January 24th at 5:30pm
Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center
120 College Street in downtown Asheville
This exhibition will celebrate the work and impact of the women associated with Black Mountain College, featuring borrowed works alongside pieces from the BMCM+AC collection by a wide-ranging group of artists including Anni Albers, Suzi Gablik, Ruth Asawa, Jo Sandman, M.C. Richards, and Hazel Larsen Archer. BMC was a place where women could explore their identities as artists and individuals; a space where women were expected to question things, to think critically and to explore their own self determinacy. Through artworks, personal accounts and archival film and photographs, Question Everything! details how this new generation went forward with a strong sense of what it meant to be a woman in the 20th century, forging new paths for themselves and those who followed in their footsteps.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
