KATONAH MUSEUM.....selections from the INTERNATIONAL COLLAGE CENTER until October 13

Remix: Selections from the International Collage CenterIn the Beitzel, Righter, and Project Galleries
June 30 – October 13, 2013
Unlike other artistic practices, the palette of collage is infinite, utilizing sources from the quotidian to the precious. Collage is woven through the history of modern and contemporary art, and every material is permissible and ripe for reinterpretation. Collage artists reconstruct fragments from the “real” world into new realms that are simultaneously recognizable and wholly fantastical.

Remix features work created during the last 70 years by over 100 artists. It includes traditional forms of collage, and also presents unexpected approaches in a range of media. Exhibition themes include collage and the incorporation of text, collage as a form of social and political commentary, collage that challenges scale to spectacular effect, and collage in the digital age. Remix promises to expand and enrich public perceptions of this mutable medium.
