The Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture is pleased to present two collage exhibitions in November. Remix: Selections from the International Collage Center and Richard Meier: Selected Collage Works will open Monday, November 4 with a reception in the Ewing Gallery at 6:30. Prior to the lecture, ICC founder and New York gallerist, Pavel Zoubok will deliver a lecture on the history of collage -- "Collage Culture: From Picasso to Facebook."
Remix presents the work of over 100 artists drawn from the ICC's permanent lending and research collection alongside further loans from prominent artists.
Remix weaves the narrative of collage through the history of modern and contemporary art. Coined in the early 20th century from the French word coller, meaning to glue or stick, the term collage originally described a revolutionary method of art-making. Over time its definition has expanded to represent an approach to and perception of the modern world. The 100 artists featured in the exhibition utilize collage's core conceptual traits—heterogeneity, fragmentation and appropriation—to address with clarity and immediacy the circumstances of their times. Remix explores the impact of collage on artistic and cultural expression and gathers together the diverse fragments of a rich artistic tradition.
On Tuesday, November 5, there will be a panel discussion on collage held in the Ewing Gallery. Panelists include, Deb Shmerler, Associate Professor of Graphic Design at UT; Brian Ambroziak, Associate Professor of Architecture at UT; Pavel Zoubok, founder of the International Collage Center; Andrew McLellan, project manager at Weber Fox Murphy in Charlotte; and Jennifer Shields, Visiting Assistant Professor at the UNC Charlotte School of Architecture. Shields has recently completed her first book, Collage and Architecture.
Richard Meier: Selected Collage Works is a presentation of 20 recent works. They are a collaboration between Meier and Master Printer, Gary Lichtenstein. The images are 11-color silkscreens of original Meier collages with one-of-a-kind collage and drawing on top of the prints.
