When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty … but when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong. — R. Buckminster Fuller. Shown here in his studio at #blackmountaincollege c.1948 #teaching #design

Black Mountain College was an experiment in culture, education and creativity. It was a place that fostered some of the greatest artists and minds of the 20th century, and a place where the assumptions of the outside world were pushed and prodded. All my professional and creative work thus far is in an effort to bring the ideals of BMC to a second life of fruition. #changemakers #blackmountaincollege

Heads up #ruthazawa on show at David Zwirner. Too much beauty. Where is the current heir of #blackmountaincollege and where can I join?

Come build with us! On Wednesday, August 2, the @centerforarchk12 will help our visitors construct a geodesic dome, a unique structural form invented by architect and engineer Buckminster Fuller at #BlackMountainCollege. Collaborate with other visitors to construct a 14-foot geodesic dome, then work as a family to design and build your own model. Visit mo.ma/2u39yNO to register (link in bio). The next session will be Saturday, August 12.

The architectural genius of R. Buckminster Fuller. Some of Bucky words: "Integrity is the essence of everything successful", "The important thing about Spaceship Earth - an instruction book didn't come with it", and "We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims". #design #geodesicdome #geometry #blackmountaincollege

"I dance all of the time, and I love all of the movements which ARE possible. Albers calls me 'biological' in color class." #RuthAsawa letter to Albert Lanier, April 4, 1949.

#HammerHighlights: “One of the best aspects about being part of an installation process is the intimate relationship we develop with the works. We unpack, examine, hold, and measure each work, and as such get a very tactile understanding of each thing we handle. How is it made? Is it heavy or light? What did the artist write on the back? […] It was especially wonderful to reassemble the loom Anni Albers used at Black Mountain College. Here was an object used to create many other objects in the exhibition, and to work with it in a way Albers might have gave us a deeper understanding of that time and place, which we greatly appreciated.” –Jason Pugh, chief preparator, reflects on our #BlackMountainCollege exhibition

The amazing Martha McDonald’s catalog from Black Mountain College Museum. Martha curated an exhibition from the collection, made an installation/performance based on Xanti Schawinsky’s 1936 SPECTODRAMA (Laura Baird composed and played the music), and wrote a hefty, excellent essay. Performances this coming weekend! #marthamcdonald #laurabaird #blackmountaincollege #blackmountaincollegemuseum #xantischawinsky
