Lamarche, Holeworld 2011

Spanning nearly a century, the breadth of the ACA exhibition documents how collage's use of bits and pieces of applied materials is unique in its ability to capture physical moments of time: the created or found materials of the early 20th century, its pigments and fonts and ephemera, tell very different stories than the wildly varied, often inorganic or digital materials available to collagists working in the 21st. Collage has the ability to bring a tactile, physical experience of human history into the reality-presence of the viewer.

John Evans, November 25

21st century collagists such as Philomena Marano give us fantastical visions of urban life; Greg Lamarche speaks in an elegant voice of the outlaw street; Irene Hardwicke Olivieri returns to organic materials to reconnect to a more primitive human psyche, while Debra Pearlman marries the technology of photography to the natural act of drawing and to organic materials and textiles to explore the experience of fear, anxiety and the possibility of healing in our frenzied contemporary life.

Curator Mikaela Sardo Lamarche has organized a comprehensive exhibition that documents collage's modern history, demonstrates its international and intergenerational scope.
