Cut N' Mix: Contemporary Collage at El Museo del Barrio, 2015
On view July 22, 2015 – October 17, 2015
Excited to have these six pieces included in the exhibition "Cut N' Paste: Contemporary Collage" curated by Rocio Aranda-Alvarado at El Museo del Barrio. "This exhibition explores the work of artists experimenting with collage and collage techniques in ways that expand the gestures of cutting paper and mixing various mediums together. It takes as its point of departure some of the concepts from Dick Hebdidge’s series of essays collectively titled Cut N Mix: Culture, Identity and Caribbean Music, published in 1980. In this text, Hebdidge explored the variations of Caribbean reggae and dancehall and other related styles of music as emblematic markers of Caribbean ideas of nationhood, belonging, and the making of culture."
