LEAP BEFORE YOU LOOK: BLACK MOUNTAIN COLLEGE 1933–1957

Oct. 10, 2015 Jan. 24, 2016

The first comprehensive U.S. museum exhibition on Black Mountain College, Leap Before You Look shows how the short-lived progressive school became a seminal meeting place for such influential artists, musicians, dancers, poets, and thinkers as Anni and Josef Albers, John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg, Buckminster Fuller, and Charles Olsen, among many others. Their work at the college continues to have an important influence on art in many forms today. True to the interdisciplinary nature of the school, Leap Before You Look includes live performances of seminal works by Merce Cunningham and John Cage as well as a soundscape and poetry recordings.
