Gathered Together: Black Artists and the Collage Aesthetic

February 8 @ 10:00 am - May 14 @ 4:00 pm

Free

The medium of collage offers artists an inventive means of constructing a work of art, often incorporating everyday materials and found objects, such as newspapers, photographs and fabric. Gathered Together: Black Artists and the Collage Aesthetic explores the practice and visual strategies of collage, highlighting the University’s collection of African American art.

The exhibition presents the work of 26 Black artists who have engaged with the technique and aesthetic of collage from the 1970s to today. Working across figuration and abstraction, these artists examine a wide array of subject matter, from the profoundly personal to the social and political.

The exhibition is on view February 8 – May 14 in Mechanical Hall Gallery on the University of Delaware’s Newark campus. Mechanical Hall Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Admission is free. Please observe the University’s current COVID-19 health and safety protocols when visiting.
