Exhibition: OCC.0016

VanDerBeek + VanDerBeek

September 20, 2019 – January 4, 2020

VanDerBeek + VanDerBeek presented artwork by Sara VanDerBeek (b. 1976, Baltimore, MD) alongside work by her father, Stan VanDerBeek (b. 1927, New York, NY – d. 1984, Baltimore, MD), a Black Mountain College alum. The show included a selection of Stan VanDerBeek’s restored films, featuring layers of dance, color, and sound – often through collaborations with other artists.

Contemporary artist Sara VanDerBeek created new work for the exhibition connected to the BMC legacy. Together Sara VanDerBeek and Chelsea Spengemann, Director of the Stan VanDerBeek Archive, curated an exhibition that bridges the historic and contemporary.

VanDerBeek + VanDerBeek was supported by a National Endowment for the Arts Art Works grant.
