Black Mountain College Portfolios

Ant M Lobo

This body of work, Black Mountain College Portfolios, was scheduled to be shown at the Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center’s 10th annual {Re}HAPPENING festival, on the grounds of the historic Lake Eden campus. Ant M Lobo’s exhibition, (Re)Visions, and the festival were cancelled due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. All of the photographs were taken on an Argus C3, a BMC era appropriate camera, during the BMCM+AC’s ReVIEWING Black Mountain College conference in September 2019.
