"Collage: The Unmonumental Picture"
January 16 - March 30 2008
“Unmonumental” expands on January 16, 2008 with the opening of “Collage: The Unmonumental Picture.” Recent collages by eleven artists, including works made expressly for the exhibition, will be installed on the gallery walls surrounding the sculptures already on view. Using varied strategies and materials, each of the artists in this portion of “Unmonumental” exploits the formal and ideological power of juxtaposing found images to create everything from social and political commentaries to Surrealist fantasies and personal confessions. Collage is a medium that by definition incorporates fragments and deals with opposing tensions, broken images, hidden desires, and collective myths. “The Unmonumental Picture” demonstrates the urgent relevance of collage practice in a contemporary world full of excessive imagery.
