The visually mind bending INTERNATIONAL WEIRD COLLAGE SHOW (IWCS) continues it’s unstoppable global expedition and shape shifting collage exhibition series with it’s 8th edition and U.S. debut at Brooklyn’s The Invisible Dog Art Center. Expanding beyond its core group of collage provocateurs and instigators, the Brooklyn edition of the IWCS is certainly founders Rubén B and Max-o-matic’s most ambitious exhibition yet, with 35 artist from 10 countries. By enlisting the help of co-curator and local collage master Charles Wilkin, this exhibition promises to reexamine this often misunderstood medium with an interactive exhibition of stunning experimental collage works, inspirational artist talks and a live collage round table featuring many of today’s most influential cutters.

The INTERNATIONAL WEIRD COLLAGE SHOW started in Madrid in 2011 with the primary mission of providing enlightenment and discourse by uniting the global collage community through exhibitions, printed matter and on-line publishing. This simple premise has produced a stream of grass-roots shows and publications, propelling collage out of the shadows to become one of today’s most influential mediums. Past exhibitions have been presented in Madrid (Spain), Rotterdam (Neatherlands), Berlin (Germany), San José (Costa Rica), Quito (Ecuador) and Lima (Perú), and the BROOKLYN WEIRD SHOW will continue the WEIRD tradition of providing collage artists everywhere an outlet to express their voice, offering a glimpse into the undefined and universal narratives that brings us together.

In addition to the exhibition there will be a series of collage workshops and lectures presented by some of the artists featured in the BROOKLYN WEIRD SHOW over the course of the exhibition, they include;

    Presently featuring Brandi Strickland, one of the artists in this show, on my blog. Too bad the Texas Hill Country is so far from Brooklyn. Alas, this virtual brush is as close as I’ll get to actually viewing this collection, which, knowing Brandi’s work, promises to be stunning!

    Ciao!
