This will be the Chicago Urban Art Society’s second installment of the inaugural group show “Medley” that exhibited on May 11, 2012. “Medley” series presents artists that work within the genre of collage or, assemblage. Contrary to the general publics knowledge of this medium as simply affixing papers, ephermera, or objects to a two dimensional surface, the Curator selected a grouping of national and international artists practicing collage-work in both two and three dimensional techniques.
Looking beyond the expected and pushing constructing boundaries within the digital, analog and sculptural collage culture, “Medley” encourages viewers to consider, “What you think of collage can always change.”.
