In the fourth in our series of artist presentations Sasha Callaghan introduces us to the history of collage. Collage has its roots in mass-production, putting together previously unconnected images and creating work which is both subversive and beautiful. This presentation will look at 400 years of collage from early printing to contemporary collagists, by way of Victorian toy theatres, erotic graphic novels from the 1930’s, resistance movements and The Sex Pistols.
Afterwards there will be a short live Q&A session with Sasha. Please submit your questions via the comments sections on Facebook and Youtube, or via the hashtag #DAOCovidCommissions
This presentation is part of our Covid Commissions programme. Artist Presentations will take place fortnightly on Wednesday afternoons.
