Kolaj Magazine has announced the creation of an artist directory that will serve as a tool for organizing and cataloguing artists who work in the medium of collage. Its audience includes the general public as well as independent curators, art venues, and writers. The editorial staff of Kolaj Magazine will use the Artist Directory to select artists to feature in the publication and to select artists for various curatorial projects. The Artist Directory exists as a public resource for those interested in collage as a medium and is designed to put interested parties in direct contact with artists.
In 2012, we will mark the 100th anniversary of collage as a modern and contemporary art form. Come celebrate the occasion at the Winooski Pop-up Gallery District. Ben Depelteau, Montreal-based artist and editor of Kolaj Magazine, will lead two collage making sessions on Saturday, July 21st. One is for kids age 5-12 and the other is for adults.
Punk Surrealist artist Winston Smith, known for his sulfuric political collages, will be talking about surrealism, art and anarchy with V.Vale, Penelope Rosemont and Ron Sakolsky. This panel discussion is part of the 2012 Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair, presented by Bound Together Bookstore in San Fransisco.
