Strange Glue (Traditional & Avant-garde) Virtual Annex
Strange Glue (Traditional and Avant-garde Collage) Virtual Annex
by Todd Bartel
“Collage at 100” is a three-part, yearlong exhibition series that celebrates the centennial of the appearance of collage in painting. “Virtual Annex” is a sister exhibition to the analog “Strange Glue (Traditional & Avant-garde Collage)”, exhibition, which is only viewable online at thompsongallery.blog.com. While the analog show focused on art-historical categories of collage, spanning the last 100 years, it also focused on the properties of physical adhesives. Accordingly, “Virtual Annex” examines immaterial glues, such as emotional glue, associative glue and conceptual glue to name only a few.
