The avant-garde outdoors art exhibition at the former Black Mountain College is (re)happening again, and organizers are calling on a variety of multimedia artists to contribute.

Last year’s {RE}HAPPENING attracted more than 60 artists for a night of experimental art, including multimedia video installations, dance performances and spoken-word readings. The events were spread across Lake Eden’s Camp Rockmont. Xpress‘s Alli Marshall previewed last April’s event. The next {Re}Happening is scheduled for Saturday, April 5, 2014.

Here’s the press release:

The {Re}HAPPENING artist call is open to all Western North Carolina based artists. ARTISTS OF ALL GENRES are encouraged to apply; this includes (but is not limited to) artists working in performance, sculpture, installation, multimedia, interaction, sound, spoken word, painting, photography, film, and video.

The {Re}HAPPENING honors the dynamic artistic energy of Black Mountain College and pays tribute to the groundbreaking innovations of that community of artists. Meanwhile, the event launches a contemporary platform for artists and patrons to experience adventurous art and creativity in the present day.

This year’s event takes place on Saturday April 5, 2014 and re-imagines Black Mountain College’s tradition of Saturday night parties and performances. This year marks the fifth annual {Re}HAPPENING when more than eighty artists from the region’s diverse creative communities will come together in the spirit of Black Mountain College. Artists are encouraged to push the envelope and take risks by incorporating spontaneity, experimentation, audience participation and/or interdisciplinary modes of art-making into their work.
