Kolaj Fest New Orleans will be a historic coming together of collage artists and art professionals; a multi-day festival and symposium about contemporary collage and its role in art, culture, and society; where the focus is how we elevate the status of collage. Presenters are leading panel discussions, addressing key curatorial issues, asking why collage is often treated as a second-rate medium. Artists are planning a festival-wide installation, creating special activities and demonstrations. We will meet, network, share community, camaraderie, and fellowship. We will leave armed with new ideas for our artmaking, writing, and curatorial projects, but more importantly, we will leave Kolaj Fest New Orleans prepared to champion this artform in the year to come.
Registration to Kolaj Fest New Orleans gives you an all access pass to events and a welcome packet that includes the Kolaj Fest Book and other goodies. Registration costs $125.
What is Kolaj Fest New Orleans?
Kolaj Fest New Orleans is a multi-day festival and symposium about contemporary collage and its role in art, culture, and society. Our mission is to create a platform that allows us to explore critical issues around collage (how it is curated and presented, its role in contemporary art, and the tensions between collage as a medium, a genre, and a phenomenon). Our goal is to create an event that attracts a variety of people working in various capacities, such as art professionals at museums, galleries, and centers as well as academics, writers, and artists. The general public will be welcome to join us for gallery visits, evening presentations, and collage making.
Why Kolaj Fest?
For over 100 years, we have been advancing, exploring, and disrupting visual art through collage. It is about time to give the medium its due. It’s time to come together as a community.
Kolaj Fest is a
decentralized event happening all over
July 12-15, 2018.
