KATONAH, N.Y. – The Katonah Museum of Art will feature Remix: Selections from the International Collage Center to highlight the collage art style from June 30 to Oct. 13, according to a press release.
North Salem native Pavel Zoubok is co-curating the exhibit. Zoubok is also the founder and artistic director of the International Collage Center. Rachael Lawe, the director of the ICC, is the other co-curator.
“The exhibition weaves the narrative of collage through the history of modern and contemporary art featuring work created during the last 80 years by more than 100 artists,” according to the press release. “Traditional forms of collage are used, as well as unexpected approaches in a range of media. Remix promises to expand and enrich public perceptions of collage.”
Ellen Keiter, curator of contemporary art at the Katonah Museum of Art, offered the following thoughts on the exhibit in the press release:
“Collage is such a familiar medium, so Remix will be an experience that we can all appreciate without having a deep knowledge of art.
“Collage is part of our everyday lives, starting with learning to cut and paste at a very young age…In fact, we live in a collage world – we create our own personal collages on Facebook and Pinterest. Even how we dress is a collage; a mixing-and-matching of materials, styles, and accessories. This is an exhibition that will resonate with anyone and everyone.”
The exhibit will showcase collages through seven themes: - Collage, Poetry, Text and Language, which features works by Tony Fitzpatrick and Ray Johnson - Collage as an Extension of Painting, which features works by Melissa Meyer and Ron Erhlich - Collage as a Form of Resistance, which features works by Radcliffe Bailey, Romare Bearden, Mary Beth Edelson and Miriam Schapiro - Collage and the Archival Impulse, which features works by Barton Lidice Benes, Joseph Cornell and Kurt Schwitters - Collage and the Constructed World, which features works by Josh Dorman and Addie Herder - Collage, Materiality, Process and Scale, which features works by Nick Cave, Matthew Cusick, Lisa Hoke and Judy Pfaff - Collage in the Digital Age, which features video works by Takeshi Murata and Mark Napier
