Issue 5: Threads of Perception

Kolaj is a quarterly, printed magazine about contemporary collage. We are interested in how collage is made, how collage is exhibited, and how collage is collected. We bring together critical reviews and essays with artist profiles, event highlights, and articles on collage collecting, exhibiting, and making. Kolaj is published in Montreal, Quebec by Maison Kasini.
