The International Weird Collage Show

Collage

Max-o-Matic

In their 14th tour-de-force of contemporary collage artists, The Weird Show has brought the International Weird Collage Show to Shoreditch gallery Jealous East. The show will continue it’s tradition of featuring loud, disruptive art with a focus on new ways of caving out the medium. A selection of 25 artists from around the world will exemplify the ways in which cutting-edge collage makers are leaving behind cliché and re-conceiving the process of collage.
