Use and Mention

Curated by John Chilver. This is an exhibition of artworks by 40 artists. Works include collages, drawings, posters, archival materials in files, paintings on canvas, prints, sculptures, a video projection and a spoken performance. The focus of the exhibition was collage. But instead of simply presenting a variety of objects and images that could be immediately recognised as collage, the exhibition was designed to invite viewers to question the boundaries of the category. So photomontages were shown alongside archive materials, text works, sound works and video, etc., such that a narrow conception of collage as a single specifiable material process was challenged.
