Online Programming

Collage as Collection
Saturday, March 20, 2021 1:00PM
PWYC online workshop with instructor Maggie Groat

This workshop will look at frameworks and associative logics utilized to amass collections of found images, and how these systems can be strategically mobilized towards the creation of original collages. We will discuss the collection as it relates to capitalism, colonialism, hierarchies, and power dynamics, and how artists have, and continue to, use methodologies of collage to comment, critique, subvert, and challenge existing narratives and histories through claiming, decontextualizing, fragmenting, and reassembling collections of existing materials. Participants are encouraged to gather and bring their own collections of images, as well as any inspiring (or convenient) source materials to collect images from, to workshop new methodologies and compositions.

Maggie Groat’s Open Edition is on sale now and will be available for purchase through March 20. To purchase the unframed edition click here.
