Repurposeful: The Art of Collage & Assemblage

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

After a year of social isolation, we’ve re-engaged with our local communities and learned that through cooperation there is power to effect change. RePurposeful speaks to a renewed knowledge of our interdependence, and will serve as a celebration of the alchemy that occurs when bringing disparate and diverse parts together to create something new, better, more beautiful, and more purposeful.

What kind of "collage and assemblage" work are we seeking?

We are looking to review both traditionally defined collage and assemblage. We are also looking for work that pushes these formal boundaries but is related to collage and assemblage in spirit. For instance, textile works like quilts are welcome for submission.

In addition, we are looking for interactive art pieces that exhibition attendees can participate in creating. Community Collage or tapestry ideas? Please share your ideas with us!

Opening Night: October 1, 2021

*There is no fee to enter, and artists can submit up to 3 collages/assemblages or one interactive art piece for review.
