ABOUT THE SHOW
Kaleidoscope: A Showcase of Collage and Mixed Media
Curated by Baylee Van
A group show, showcasing artists that push the boundaries and create a new understanding of collage as a medium. Collage mirrors the the ways in which queer identity is assembled of bits and pieces of societally validated sexual and gender identity, layered on top of one another to create something new and different that fits us. Kaleidoscope breaks the conventions of medium and presentation within collage.
Just as the queer community constantly innovates identity, Kaleidoscope features artists who innovate collage forging a space within the world of fine art for our work just as we forge a space within society for us.
