I AM A CITIZEN OF THE WORLD

April 9 – August 14, 2021

Black Mountain College’s identity was formed by its uniquely global influences, with students, faculty, and staff hailing from over 20 countries across Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the Mediterranean. To be a part of Black Mountain College was to be a citizen of the world. Historic works from BMC artists and the contemporary responses featured in this exhibition ask us to examine our preconceived ideas of citizenship and our responsibility to one another.
