Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center seeks proposals for presentations at the 13th Annual ReVIEWING Black Mountain College International Conference. 

The conference will take place October 7-9, 2022, in Asheville, NC. This year's theme is Leo Amino / The Visible and the Invisible: Submerged Histories of Race, Gender, and Abstraction.

Proposals dealing with all aspects of Black Mountain College are welcome, with special encouragement to focus on submerged histories of experimental practice in 20th century American art during the years of operation of Black Mountain College (1933-1957). With an emphasis on the legacy of Black Mountain for artists of color and members of other marginalized groups, the conference seeks to interrogate more broadly the omissions and orthodoxies of prevailing narratives that have limited the ways we write about the relationship between race, gender, experiment, and abstraction in the 20th century.

Proposals are requested by July 1, 2022. Please submit proposals using this submission form. Notification will be made by July 15, 2022.
