Social Justice Collage Workshop

A four-week, virtual/online workshop in March & April 2021 with Kolaj Institute

Deadline to apply: 13 March 2021

Collage artists with a passion for equal rights and equitable opportunities for all are invited to apply for Kolaj Institute’s Social Justice Collage Workshop, a four-week program designed to provide a foundation for the intersection of collage and social justice with the end result of creating a collage for an exhibition in May.

Early social justice advocates focused on issues such as the distribution of capital, property, and wealth because of the extreme disparity between the rich and the poor at the time. Since then, the term social justice has adapted to include the environment, race, gender, and other causes and manifestations of inequality with a focus on human rights and improving the lives of disadvantaged and marginalized groups.

The workshop is designed to explore the purpose, meaning, context, history and problems of social justice through collage making, discussion, examination of other artists’ work, and hearing from dynamic speakers who make and curate social justice collage. Participants will engage with each other via Slack and meet once a week on Zoom for four weeks. The workshop faculty is Elaine Tassy, Gerald Leavell, Rachel Monique Walker, and G.E. Vogt.

Elaine Tassy sees social justice collage-making “as a way to participate in the cry for justice for victims in some small way, and to process my feelings around their victimization at the same time.” During the workshop, she will speak about her experience making social justice collage and present, Say Their Names, an interactive art experience that documents and reimagines the police killings of Black people. She will invite participants to contribute to this project by creating context for one of the figures.

Gerald Leavell writes, “Social justice, to me, begins with self-reflection. Honest, brave, and compassionate self-reflection.” Gerald Leavell will speak about artists who are currently using collage to make an impact and lead a collage making session.

For Rachel Monique Walker, social justice is “a form of living justice, where action is taken to counter oppressions and restore rightful respect to people who are dehumanized by our systems.” Walker’s vision board exercise will give participants a chance to reflect on their previous engagement with the idea of social justice, consider where they are headed with social justice in the future, and make a collage in response to these insights.

G.E. Vogt will lead a presentation of their own voyage of learning about the history of political collage. They write, “Art is one of the most powerful forms of expressing, or bringing attention to the different forms of social inequality, thereby acting as a catalyst to motivate the necessary work for social justice.”

Artists in the workshop will work alongside each other to conceptualize, contextualize, and create social justice-themed collages. At the end of the workshop, everyone will be invited to have one of their collages included in the May 2021 exhibition at the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice along with Elaine Tassy’s piece, Say Their Names.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

The workshop is intended for self-motivated artists, at any stage in their career, who want to develop a practice of making artwork in response to social injustice. The workshop focuses on creating collage that addresses modern issues and current political concerns. The workshop is open to artists anywhere in the world.

Eligibility:

World Collage Day is May 8, 2021

World Collage Day is an annual, international celebration of collage on the Second Saturday of May. Initiated by Kolaj Magazine in 2018, we invited artists and art venues to hold events on that day to celebrate collage. World Collage Day is about artists connecting across borders against a global context of entrenchment and separation. The day is also about an art medium that excels at bringing different things together to create new forms and new ways of thinking. Ric Kasini Kadour, the editor of Kolaj Magazine, writes, “We created World Collage Day because we wanted to honor this community of artists and to remind the world what a spirit of cooperation, mutual support, and creativity can look like.” The next World Collage Day is May 8th, 2021.

For those interested in joining in the spirit of World Collage Day, we offer a number of opportunities to join in the celebration:

Submit a Cut-Out Page to the Special Edition

In honor of World Collage Day, Kolaj Magazine will issue a Special Edition of the magazine that features Cut-Out Pages and articles about the collage community. A Cut-Out Page is a selection of fragments that one can use to make a collage. The feature reflects artists’ styles and approaches to collage making and shows how artists select and organize fragments. People use the Cut-Out Pages to make collage. For instructions on how to make and submit a Cut-Out Page, visit the Call to Artists. The deadline is January 31, 2021 to be considered for the World Collage Day 2021 Special Edition.

Apply to become the World Collage Day Poster Artist

Each year, Kolaj Magazine works with a collage artist to make a poster and other marketing collateral for the annual event. This year, we want to hear from artists who are interested in being considered. The 2021 World Collage Day Poster Artist will receive a $500 stipend and work with Kolaj staff to develop a series of elements and backgrounds that will be adapted to various marketing collateral. The work will be completed by the end of February. To apply, send an email to info@kolajmagazine.com with 1) the link to your listing in the Kolaj Magazine Artist Directory; 2) a sentence or two about the themes or concepts that you’d like to work with; 3) any experience you have working with marketing teams.

Curating Collage Workshop

Share

Eligibility:

A four week, virtual/online workshop in October-November 2020 with the University of Vermont’s Fleming Museum of Art

Curating is a vital part of art’s function: a curator creates a bridge between artwork and audience. For artists, this process can be confusing and mysterious. The goal of the Curating Collage Workshop is to equip artists with the tools to curate their own work, to work with curators, and build exhibitions that connect with diverse audiences.

The Curating Collage Workshop is a four-week program designed to train artists as curators. In six virtual meetings over four weeks and through ongoing, online discussion, we will explore the fundamentals of curating, how to create critical context for collage, and various strategies for presenting collage to an audience. Topics will include art writing; gallery and museum issues; documenting artist practice; and working with art professionals.

The Curating Collage Workshop will focus on the role of the exhibition: How do we exhibit collage? What is needed from collage to function in a commercial gallery, art center, or museum? How do we build exhibitions that go beyond the “Cut and Paste” group show model that is prevalent today? What does it mean to be artist-centric, medium-centric, or viewer-centric in the presentation of collage in exhibition? And the workshop will explore ideas around Curation: What is a curator and what is their role? How do we introduce collage to viewers? How do we build an audience for collage and generate enthusiasm and a sense of value for the work? How do we take collage where it needs to go to reach the viewers it is intended to reach?

Participants will curate a collage from the collection of the University of Vermont’s Fleming Museum of Art. Texts may be used by the Museum and will be adapted for publication in Kolaj Magazine. Artists in the workshop will curate each other’s work and produce a statement of practice, biography, and critical context for a body of work. This material will be developed into a proposal for an exhibition or book. Proposals will be considered by Kolaj Institute. Artists will leave the workshop with a collection of texts that document and provide critical context for their work.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

The Curating Collage Workshop is for artists with an established practice and a body of work they would like to bring to an audience through exhibition or publication.

COST

The cost of Curatoring Collage Workshop is $350 USD, however no artist will be turned away for lack of funds and the organizers will work with artists to build a financial aid package. The Curating Collage Workshop is limited to 10 artists.

Deadline: 
10/11/2020
