the cut, the tear & the remix: contemporary collage and Black futures brings together the work of eight contemporary artists deeply engaged in the excavation of a future informed by their individual ancestral connections to the African and Caribbean diaspora and their varied interpretations of collage. This online exhibition presents “cut & paste” techniques in not only its traditional tactile paper and photomontage iterations, but also in uncharacteristic expressions of new media including video, text and design. The digital presentation of the remix, as a result of current global circumstances, is in and of itself an envisioning of the future of Black spatial and temporal experiences marking an invitation to participate in this new imagining.
The virtual exhibition will be presented on https://museum.mcmaster.ca/ starting on April 22nd, and will include a series of virtual events and artists talks leading up to the exhibition opening.
