Exhibitions

Announcements and reviews of exhibitions that feature collage.

Suzanne Lafrance & Stéphanie Morissette at Galerie Dominique Bouffard

7 February – 3 March 2013

“Dans la proximité des ombres” (In the nearness of shadows): Suzanne Lafrance and Stéphanie Morissette open at Galerie Dominique Bouffard in Montreal in February. Lafrance’s work is of particular interest to those who follow collage. She creates characters by combining charcoal drawings and pages cut from books. The effect is a dialogue between language and figure.

Raven Schlossberg at Pavel Zoubok Gallery

10 January-9 February 2013

Raven Schlossberg crates “collage landscapes”, “floating worlds” hovering between multiple realities that draw heavily from the artist’s experiences traveling and exhibiting her work across Europe, losing herself intentionally and unintentionally.

Mark Hearld at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

17 November 2012 – 17 February 2013

“Birds and Beasts” showcases Mark Hearld’s practice which stems from a love of the British countryside, curiosity for objects and a magpie approach to collecting. Hearld has taken inspiration from Yorkshire Sculpture Parks’s 500-acre historic estate and its inhabitant wildlife to create new work.

The Shaping of New Visions at MoMA

18 April 2012 – 29 April 2013

Filling the third-floor Edward Steichen Photography Galleries, this installation presents more than 250 works by approximately 90 artists, with a focus on new acquisitions and groundbreaking projects by Man Ray, László Moholy-Nagy, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Germaine Krull, Dziga Vertov, Gerhard Rühm, Helen Levitt, Robert Frank, Daido Moriyama, Robert Heinecken, Edward Ruscha, Martha Rosler, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Paul Graham, and The Atlas Group/Walid Raad.

“Seuls quelques fragments de nous” at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac

30 November 2012-19 January 2013

Covering twenty years of artistic practice, from the nineties until today, the works featured in the exhibition are all related to collage, montage and fragmentation. The display is itself conceived as a collage in space by the juxtaposition of several mediums, the superimposition of works, and the presence of works composed of mirrors, fragmenting the exhibition and the public.
