In the 19th century, before the emergence of the term collage, the gluing together bits of paper—tickets, photographs, printed texts—was largely a craft, a technique used for scrapbooks and other domestic memorabilia. In the early 20th century, however, European artists such as Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso started to incorporate bits of paper into their paintings, elevating the activity of collage into a fine art. Collage was born. Assemblage, the three-dimensional equivalent of collage, was not far behind.

Drawn exclusively from the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art’s collection—with the exception of one seminal loan—this exhibition looks at how diverse collage and assemblage art can be, especially in the hands of American artists. 

This exhibition has been made possible in part by the Richard D. Pinney Exhibition Fund and a Program Fund Grant from the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.
