Interlude at Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center

Interlude celebrates the dynamic partnership of BMCM+AC and The MAP by paying tribute to Black Mountain College’s cultural legacy via contemporary applications of performance, technology and aesthetics. Interlude is a platform for artists of multiple disciplines to carry out experimental and non-traditional practices emphasized by the scholars of Black Mountain College. The event activated a variety of spaces in downtown Asheville through music, dance, poetry, video, installation, conversation, and participatory events.

Using wood sourced from a local sawmill, Ellie Richards will be creating a large-scale wall sculpture in an exploration of found objects and furnished decor. She will be drawing inspiration from Josef Albers’ color theories as well as themes of community and craft. The sculpture will be on view for several days, interacting with other pieces and performances that will share the location. This interaction is a part of piece, as she is interested in the way that furnishings affect space.
