Event Description

“Vices Peculiar to These Eclectics”: Contemporary Collage

Tuesday, April 7, 2015, 5 – 9:00 pm

On Exhibit
April 1 – May 5, 2015

Plastic bags and colored pencils; seashells and grouse wings; vintage encyclopedias and rare books; doilies and dollar bills–these are some of the materials found in the collages and assemblages of fifteen contemporary artists in “Vices Peculiar to These Eclectics”: Contemporary Collage. An ecstatic display bringing together nearly fifty works of art, this exhibition also puts a spotlight on writers working in written and visual collage forms; a tour of old and recent collage publications; and a "sound collage" wing where visitors can listen to sampling, remixes, and mashups. This show is a celebration and a provocation, a lively glimpse into how today's hunter gatherers are making art, text, and sound in a climate of information and material overload.

Featured artists include: Virginia Fleck, Vanessa German, Caroline Golden, Don Joint, Beat Klein, Hendrikje Kühne, Lance Letscher, Paul Loughney, Richard Meier, Robert Ohnigian, David Poppie, Donna Sharrett, Katherine Streeter, Maritta Tapanainen, Mark Wagner, and Peter Lamborn Wilson.
