Constructing Collage

This exhibition presents some of the ways in which artists have employed collage, and the related forms of photomontage and film montage, throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. For some, it has been the ideal technique to explore human imagination. For others, it has been an effective strategy to comment on cultural, social, and political developments. For still others, it has been a useful tool to extend the limits of artistic practice. The multiplicity and pluralism of collage have rendered it emblematic of the fast-paced and ever-changing contemporary world.

Drawn from the Mead Art Museum's permanent collection as well as loans from Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, the exhibition features works by Joseph Cornell, Romare Bearden, Olga Rozanova, and Robert Rauschenberg among others.
