FROM KOLAJ #24
Coming Soon: Museum of Contemporary Collage in Viborg
London-based artist James Springall curated a group exhibition of contemporary collage with Danish-based Sergei Sviatchenko. The exhibition in Viborg, Denmark on view through 31 December 2018 celebrates the city’s 1000-year anniversary. Artists were tasked with including an image of the city in the collage on view. That alone would be noteworthy, but what has us excited is Springall’s plans to use the exhibition, held in old municipal building, as the basis for a permanent Museum of Contemporary Collage Art that Sviatchenko and Springall are establishing in the city. The museum will house a carefully curated selection of collage that captures the spirit of collage’s resurgence since 2003. To find out more, visit www.contemporarycollageart.com.
