COLLAGE 2021

Online Exhibition+Artbook– CALL FOR ENTRY
ENTRY DEADLINE: Saturday, February 27, 2021, by midnight.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
This year we are initiating our 1st juried exhibition showcasing collage-based work by contemporary artists.

The art term “collage” comes from the French Language and literally means “to glue”.

For this exhibition, CALL, collage is understood as both the technique and the resulting work of art in which pieces of paper, photographs, fabric, and other ephemera are arranged and stuck down onto a supporting surface to create an overall work of art. Digital-Montage works will also be considered.

JUROR
Claire Christie is the principal of Christie Contemporary, which opened its doors in October 2016. The Toronto-based gallerist has actively contributed to visual culture in the city for more than three decades. Her gallery has quickly become known for privileging work that is invested, disciplined, and not afraid of play. Christie is celebrated for her highly attuned eye for aesthetic detail and material investigation.  For more detail see esse.ca or visit the Christie Contemporary website www.christiecontemporary.com.
