KOLAJ LIVE MILWAUKEE
Kolaj Institute Announces Program
for Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee
Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee is a real time manifestation of Kolaj Magazine and Kolaj Institute. From the evening of Friday, July 30th, 2021 to Sunday, August 1st, 2021, artists, curators, and writers will gather for a weekend of collage making, slideshows, exhibition visits, and storytelling that deepen our understanding of collage as a medium, a genre, a community, and a 21st century movement.
As the Collage Marathon rolls in the background, collage artists from across North America will make presentations that raise pertinent issues about 21st century collage. Artists will share their practices, speak about projects they are working on, discuss how they use vintage materials or use collage to explore queer ecology. Presenters will speak about decolonization in the diaspora; interpret The Situationist International for today’s art world; and consider “Collage as Bridge Between Psyche and Cosmos.” And we will examine the analog, digital divide with a panel of artists forging a third way. Bring your questions, an open mind, and conversation!
