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 five-week program designed to train artists as curators. In five virtual meetings over five 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?

During the workshop, Gallerist Christy Wood, co-owner of LeMieux Galleries, will speak about what she looks for and how she works with artists. Located in Arts District New Orleans, LeMieux Galleries has brought together “seasoned collectors and new art enthusiasts with artists who are committed to their vision” since 1983.

Artists in the workshop will develop their skills by curating a collage from Kolaj Institute’s collection of collage art that will be exhibited in March and April 2024. Artists will also curate artwork from one of the other participants in the workshop and develop an exhibition proposal that will be considered for exhibition at Kolaj Institute’s Gallery in New Orleans.
