In 1983, the campaign for the first #BAMNextWave was all about winning over skeptics. 35 years later, the Next Wave Guide (guide.BAM.org) is just the latest way BAM is trying to make contemporary arts less intimidating. See more archival gems from the first Next Wave season on view thru Aug 17 in the Natman Room in the Peter Jay Sharp Building at BAM. #NoMoreSkeptics #BAMArchives
