About

Featuring nearly 80 works by more than 30 international artists, Under Construction explores the growth and impact of the collage technique from the 1950s to the present. It explores not only classic collages by Romare Bearden (1911-1988), but the technique’s role in inspiring artists and other forms of art during recent decades. Collage, in which materials from different sources are cut, torn, and layered to create new meanings and narratives, experienced a renaissance after World War II thanks in large part to Bearden. Complementing more than a dozen works by Bearden are examples by Radcliffe Bailey, Sam Gilliam, Kojo Griffin, Robert A. Nelson, Man Ray, Kristina Rogers, Tim Rollins and K.O.S., Howardena Pindell, Robert Rauschenberg, and James Rosenquist. Organized by the Mint Museum, Charlotte, North Carolina. The exhibition runs August 20th - November 7th, 2021.
