Event description
Kolaj Magazine presents COLLAGE::BOOKS, a symposium on the subject of collage and the book. Presented as part of VOLUME 2 MTL.

About this Event

Consider this: The book, not the gallery, may be the best place to experience collage. This sentiment has broad implications for how collage artists work and how their work is received by an art world whose orientation is decidedly fixed on the gallery wall. Can the book provide the functions that the exhibition has historically provided to artists? Unlike an exhibition where original work is on display, a book depends on reproduction for its distribution. Will the public accept a book as an experience of artwork or even as an object of art in and of itself? And if we accept the book as being on par with the exhibition, how does that affect how we think of the history of art publishing that has come before? These are the questions we will explore at the COLLAGE::BOOKS Symposium, a day-long meeting of artists and art professionals interested in the book as art practice, art work, or as a vehicle for diffusing and sharing ideas about art.
