the cut, the tear & the remix: contemporary collage and Black futures

Curated by stylo starr
Opening April 22, 2021

The McMaster Museum of Art in partnership with the Nia Centre for the Arts is pleased to present a virtual group exhibition the cut, the tear, & the remix: contemporary collage and Black futures, curated by Hamilton visual artist and art educator stylo starr.

The virtual exhibition brings together the work of eight contemporary artists who are all deeply engaged in unearthing a future rooted in their individual ancestral connections to the African and Caribbean diaspora through varied interpretations of collage. Artists present their work using “cut & paste” techniques — both analogue and digital — that go beyond traditional tactile paper and photomontage iterations of the medium to include new media such as video, digital art and design.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a printed feature in PITCH magazine, an independently run Black arts publication based in Hamilton. In addition, a series of virtual events will be presented in leading up to opening, including a live coding performance by multidisciplinary artist and creative coder Kofi Oduro (Illestpreacha) on April 7th.

The exhibition will be available on April 22, 2021 via the McMaster Museum of Art Website. Details about visiting the exhibition online to follow.
