The event will start with the lecture-manifestation "About private collagists' hares and the other things", an homage to Beuys' performance How to explain pictures to a dead hare. The theory will be followed by practice: everybody will be welcome to make collage, to make collective work and free the collective unconscious.

The goal of the action is the popularization of collage, the most democratic and peaceful art technique. The event is open to all and is organized by Petr Prinev and the Free Collage Artists Club.

"Destockage massif" (massive clearance sale) is a series of absurd and distressing collages by Jérôme Sachs that runs from 12 May to 31 May 2018. Sachs tears, cuts and reassembles free newspapers, flyers and brochures, things found in waiting rooms: in short, the country where life is cheaper. Everything is for sale and everything is at the same reading level: Men, women, everyday objects, fashion, food, clearance items and luxury items meet at the turnstile of flavours. Sachs likes Outsider Art, Jacques Prévert, Topor, Jean Christophe Averty, record sleeves covered in scribbles, drawings on tablecloths, any art made outside of the official framework. All of his analogue collages are handmade. Sachs is the founder of the collective and agency, Studioburo, in Paris. ARTIST WEBSITE

Jack Fischer Gallery

San Francisco, California 94103 USA

"No Rhyme or Reason" is an exhibition by a group of 13 collage artists, including World Collage Day 2018 Poster Artist Michael Pajon. Jack Fischer says about this show, "Collage is a favorite medium and as I like to say the easiest thing to do badly. This show features varied voices that carry on a tradition that reportedly first began to appear with gold leaf and gemstones being applied to religious icons inside Gothic cathedrals in the 15th and 16th centuries. Mary Delany (1700-1788) is considered one of the first collage artists whose work employed paint, paper, and flower parts. Amazingly enough she began this work when she was in her 70s. MORE

Kolaj Fest New Orleans made possible through a generous gift from Laurie and Doug Kanyer.

What is Kolaj Fest New Orleans?

Kolaj Fest New Orleans is a multi-day festival and symposium about contemporary collage and its role in art, culture, and society, July 12-15, 2018. Our mission is to create a platform that allows us to explore critical issues around collage (how it is curated and presented, its role in contemporary art, and the tensions between collage as a medium, a genre, and a phenomenon). Our goal is to create an event that attracts a variety of people working in various capacities, such as art professionals at museums, galleries, and centers as well as academics, writers, and artists. The general public will be welcome to join us for gallery visits, evening presentations, and collage making.

CURRENT ISSUE

KOLAJ #22

Kolaj #22 delivers a look at the wonderful world of contemporary collage: the people who make it and the people who love it. Belgian artist Strook‘s building-sized collage is on the cover of the issue. In her profile of the artist, Etty Yaniv writes, "The found wood pieces Strook fuses in his assemblages and the imagery he depicts in his collaged paintings manifest an act of revival: allocating fragmented elements of decay by making an artistic use for them and out of them."
