In the early 20th century, with the advent of mass production of materials and media, artists like Pablo Picasso, George Braque and Kurt Schwitters began developing collage as a way of reappropriating and repurposing materials and images to imbue their works with juxtaposed information that expressed a kind of poetic logic of association.
In our current culture of mass information and media it is not surprising that artists are finding a continued purpose in investigating such relevant processes. This national juried exhibition will showcase artists working in collage, assemblage and other processes of incorporating elements of repurposed materials as a way of expressing our contemporary experience.
