'BrixLib Editions Exhibitions' regard and present the way Collage has now, and had, in the past, taken hold of people's imagination and allowed them to discover the artist inside; that they may have been unaware resided there, or were only finally able to release, until they had embraced the art form of Collage.
Collage: (French: coller, "to glue") Collagiste: A Collage Artist.
Collage is the visual art-form that most closely mirrors how we live now. The Mash-Up is a fact of Modern Society, thus;
Collage is an "An Art for Our Time"
"Collage is all about the mash-up, the re-imagining, the saving from waste, the re-inclusion, the breath of new life, the repurposing:
the Cut, and: the Paste!" (yep, you can quote us on that!)
BRIXLIB also heralds the inauguration of CollCo's
"Social Fabric Initiative Workshops" (S.F.I Workshops):
Collage workshops which will demonstrate the difference creativity can bring to individual, group, and community, welfare; by working together, using the medium of Collage.
They'll be announced soon!
