Art Talk: Collage and Montage

Fascinating new talk series with renowned art historian, John Francis

We will explore leading proponents of collage and montage.

Contemporary British conceptual artist John Stezaker refers to collage as an opener of consciousness, which allows the viewer to relook at their own visual consumption.  

In Europe, Surrealist/Dada artists Max Ernst and Hannah Hoch were pioneering in incisive collages, frottages and photomontages which challenged established notions of art. Meanwhile in Revolutionary Russia, montage was a groundbreaking cinematic theory and technique with film-maker Serge Eisenstein as its leading light.
