Sara VanDerBeek, Baltimore Dancers Twelve, 2019.

Friday, September 20, 6:30-8:30pm

7pm PERFORMANCE: Max VanDerBeek, percussion artist and son of Stan VanDerBeek, will perform a live percussion response to the recently digitized footage Stan VanDerBeek created with Merce Cunningham as part of their larger collaborative work entitled Variations V.

This exhibition explores the work of contemporary artist Sara VanDerBeek and that of her father, pioneering film artist and Black Mountain College (BMC) alumnus Stan VanDerBeek. An innovator in animation and expanded cinema, VanDerBeek often collaborated with dancers to create films that captured the dynamic movement of modern dance. Included in the exhibition are a number of recently preserved dance films as well as other works made by Stan VanDerBeek and his peers at BMC. New photographs and sculptures on view by Sara VanDerBeek employ cinematic layering and montage to explore the simultaneity of contemporary human experience. The artworks on view, including select archival materials related to Stan’s studies at BMC, taken as a whole suggest varied ways of perceiving the resonance between past and present.
