Vayo Collage Gallery is pleased to announce the open call for its 4th international exhibition of collage art, to take place in Rochester, New York from June 3–24, 2023.
NEW DIMENSIONS IN COLLAGE aims to disrupt the notion that fine art comes in a flat, four-sided shape. This exhibition will challenge the way we see collage, exploring unexpected forms, irregular edges, and dimensionality
Artists responding to the call are encouraged to think outside the frame, arriving at innovative collage submissions on their own choice of motifs. Assemblage, multi-media, and sculptural collage is encouraged, as is the use of alternative and found materials. Works may be designed for wall mounting, shelf display, or suspension from a ceiling. We ask that any required display stands, bases, or other mounting devices be included with artworks, along with any instructions as to how the work is designed to be viewed. Artists should specify if their submission is interactive or designed for viewers to touch. Makers of multipart installation pieces should contact the curator to discuss how their piece could best be displayed. Analog collagists who choose to work exclusively with flat arrangements should not be deterred from entering work, we only ask that they challenge themselves to get creative with the edges of their creations. Digital collage artists are also welcome to submit original prints of their work with the same comment applying. If you are unsure if your submission qualifies as a collage, please contact the gallery for clarification.
