Jack Tworkov survey exhibition Jack Tworkov: Beyond Black Mountain, Selected Works From 1952–1982 curated by Jason Andrew at the Asheville Art Museum, Asheville, NC.
By the time Tworkov arrived to teach painting at Black Mountain College in July 1952, his reputation as one of America’s premier painters was proven. A noted intellectual, Tworkov believed in being open to all forms of inspiration and expression. His interdisciplinary attitude and commitment to a balanced exchange of ideas made him one of the most inspiring teachers in the history of Black Mountain College. While at the school, he formed lasting relationships with composers John Cage, Morton Feldman, Stephan Wolpe, choreographer Merce Cunningham and the young artist Robert Rauschenberg to name a few.
This exhibition revisits Tworkov’s affiliation with Black Mountain College and includes a significant survey of the artist’s career including important works spanning three decades from 1952–1982.
