Collage/Assemblage Centennial: 1912-2012 at the Ontological Museum

14 September-24 November 2012

Celebrating 100 years of collage and assemblage, The International Museum of Collage will be exhibiting over 500 pieces from their archives. Founded in the 1990s, this museum project, which is a part of the larger Ontological Museum, has a peculiar approach at collecting work based on what they describe as a scientific model of “specimen gathering,” seeking works from all sorts of collage and assemblage artists in an inclusionary manner rather than selecting works based on influence, market value or status and experience of the artist.
