Friday, July 30th, 2021 to Sunday, August 1st, 2021
Saint Kate—The Arts Hotel, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee is a real time manifestation of Kolaj Magazine and Kolaj Institute.

From the evening of Friday, July 30th, 2021 to Noon on Sunday, August 1st, 2021, artists, curators, and writers will gather for a weekend of collage making, slideshows, exhibition visits, and storytelling that deepen our understanding of collage as a medium, a genre, a community, and a 21st century movement.

Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee is based in The Arc at Saint Kate—The Arts Hotel, the site of "The Money $how", an exhibition that uses collage to unpack ideas about cash, labor, and capitalism.

CALL TO ARTISTS

Call for Artists, Paper, and Projects

DEADLINE: June 20, 2021. Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee is a weekend festival and symposium July 30th to August 1st, 2021. Our mission is to create a platform that allows us to explore critical issues around collage: how it is curated and presented, its role in contemporary art, and the tensions between collage as a medium, a genre, a community, and a movement. Our goal is to create an event that attracts a variety of people working in various capacities, such as art professionals at museums, galleries, and centers as well as academics, writers, and artists. Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee plays a key role in the work of Kolaj Magazine and Kolaj Institute, as it is a way for us to become familiar with a professional's work. Presenters may be invited to participate in future projects. Responding to the Call is how you tell us that you would like to take on a presenting role at Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee.
