4 May-30 June 2012

The title of this touring exhibition comes from the words of the French critic Nicholas Bourriaud: “We are no longer either passive receivers or authoritative cultural transmitters, but potentially both simultaneously.” It presents the work of 32 artists to illustrate some of the uses of “collage in British art from the first influences of the Parisian avant-garde” through the present day.
