Opening day of COLLAGE, ASSEMBLAGE AND APPROPRIATION

Date

June 28 (Wednesday)
Opening day of COLLAGE, ASSEMBLAGE, AND APPROPRIATION
 

A new installation of works from the Museum’s collection in Butz Gallery, Collage, Assemblage, and Appropriation, highlights imaginative work that artists have created from readymade materials. In collage and assemblage, artists bring together two- or three-dimensional objects ranging from traditional art supplies to random everyday objects. In appropriation art, on the other hand, an artist borrows or imitates the work of another artist to create a new work of art. Eleven selections from the collection, including works by Larry Rivers, Ilse Getz, and Claes Oldenburg, explore the important role that these three processes have played in twentieth-century and contemporary art.
