The Book as a Place of Collage

In this book, Ric Kasini Kadour investigates this idea using examples from the magazine's collection of collage books and work by presenters are the symposium, Kadour traces the history of collage publishing, offers a taxonomy of various publishing activities, and discusses the function of the book in art practice, for art professionals, for viewer or collector.

Revolutionary Paths

When the collage is presented in exhibition, it is often done so without the critical framework granted other mediums. "Revolutionary Paths: Critical Issues in Collage" presents examples of collage that represent various aspects and takes on the medium. Each work in the exhibition represents the potential for deeper inquiry and further curatorial exploration of the medium. MORE

Cultural Decontructions

Collage is unique as a medium in that it uses as its material artifacts from the world itself. To harvest those fragments, the artist must first deconstruct culture; they must select, cut, and remove the elements they do not wish to use and then reconstruct work that tells a new story. "Cultural Deconstructions: Critical Issues in Collage" presents examples of collage artists who are deconstructing identity as a way to critique culture. MORE
