Kolaj Magazine Meet and Greet at Craftland in downtown Providence, Rhode Island
Kolaj is a quarterly, printed magazine about contemporary collage published by Maison Kasini in Montreal, Quebec. “We are interested in how collage is made, how collage is exhibited, and how collages is collected. We bring together critical reviews and essays with artist profiles, event highlights, and articles on collage collecting, exhibiting, and making.” Kolaj is online at www.kolajmagazine.com.
Publisher Ric Kasini Kadour will host a meet and greet for artists, writers, curators, gallerists, and the general public who are interested in collage as a fine art medium. Kadour will speak briefly about collage as a global art medium and how Kolaj Magazine is working to document and promote collage as contemporary fine art. Collage artists are encouraged to bring a small piece to show and learn about how to get involved in the publication. Copies of the magazine’s Cut Out Page will be on hand for folks who want to make a collage and submit it to the magazine’s quarterly contest. Issues of the magazine will also be available.
