Some Recent Collages
In his first-ever gallery show, critic and writer Luc Sante unveils a selection of new and recent collages. Sante began collaging as a teenager in the 1960s, but the heart of his source material comes from paper ephemera—magazines, postcards, photographs, etcetera—he acquired while working at the Strand Bookstore in the late 1970s. Sante has turned these scraps into works that explore the visual vocabulary of the late nineteenth century through the mid-twentieth century, and, in some cases, satirize it.
The exhibition is online only, viewable at James Fuentes’s website.
