KOLAJ INSTITUTE NEWS
Year(s) In Review
In November 2019, Kolaj Magazine announced the creation of Kolaj Institute with a mission “to support artists, curators, and writers who seek to study, document, & disseminate ideas that deepen our understanding of collage as a medium, a genre, a community, and a 21st century movement.” In that announcement we set forth a number of initiatives and then got to work. Not four months after our announcement, COVID-19 happened, time collapsed upon itself, plans changed, we adapted. Here we are, over two years later. We thought it would be a good time to offer a comprehensive report on what we’ve done and where we are going.
Here are some quick numbers. Over the past two years, we have published 8 books and produced 2 weekend-long events and over 20 virtual programs. We also produced 10 workshops, residencies, or artist labs that served 136 artists, to whom we granted $32,120 to remove financial barriers to participating.
THANK YOU for being part of this community!
