Cut Ups: Queer Collage Practices
Cut Ups: Queer Collage Practices brings together works by an intergenerational group of fiourteen queer and feminist artists who each explore collage with diverse, erotically inclined tactics. The works in this show draw from print culture and pornography, dating from the era of gay and women's liberation to the present. While collage has typically been understood through the lens of modernism and the historical avant-garde or through postmodernism and pastiche, Cut Ups does not call on these frameworks. Rather, this exhibition presents collages - whether discovered in the archives or coming out of contemporary art practices-that demonstrate pornographic inspirations and world-making ambitions.
Cut Ups: Queer Collage Practices was first exhibited in Los Angeles as Cock, Paper, Scissors (April 2 – July 10, 2016) organized by David Evans Frantz, Lucas Hilderbrand, and Kayleigh Perkov.
Generous support for this exhibition was provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the ONE Archives Foundation.
Opening Reception: October 14, 6 - 8 pm
August 14 - November 4, 2016
Through the reflection on and use of traditional portraiture, Cobi Moules creates a space for personal significance and a trans and queer presence. The repetition of the self-‐ portrait becomes a way of both documentation as well as aggrandizing singular moments within a larger process of transition. Each portrait, with new physical changes and subtle internal shifts, exists as a singular direct monument within a larger group of time and progression.
