Conference News

Thematic focus: Process + Performance

New initiatives: In conjunction with this year’s conference, we’re thrilled to launch two new dynamic efforts. 

  • The ACTIVE ARCHIVE is a stream of programs that pairs BMCM+AC’s extensive collection with contemporary artists, curators, and cultural thinkers. It launches over ReVIEWING weekend with an exhibition featuring our permanent collection of works by BMC alumni curated by interdisciplinary artist Martha McDonald.
  • The BMCM+AC Performance Initiative is a multi-part project that offers new dimensions to our visual art exhibitions. It launches during ReVIEWING with the southeast premiere of Black Mountain Songs, an interdisciplinary collaboration inspired by BMC, performed by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus and curated by Bryce Dessner and Richard Reed Parry.
