Curated by Ben Frost and presented in partnership with aMBUSH Gallery and Central Park, Paste Modernism launches its fourth incarnation on 27 November 2015.
Politically charged in its content, democratic in its process and universally divisive in its nature as an art form, the practice of paste-ups is given its due as an often overlooked but globally embraced means of expression by Australian exhibition series Paste Modernism.
Curated by Ben Frost and presented in partnership with aMBUSH Gallery, Paste Modernism launches its fourth incarnation on 27 November 2015. The exhibition will feature the wheat-pasted paper creations of over 500 artists from across the globe, plastered to every available inch of aMBUSH Gallery’s wall space in a multicoloured onslaught of digital reproductions, hand painted posters and textual works that explore the social and political concerns of modernity.
The series’ monumental growth from humble beginnings mirrors the silent paste-up boom the world has experienced, and Paste Modernism IV is a celebration of both. Artists of all ages, levels of experience, backgrounds and subject matter have been invited to submit their works and collaborate on the biggest collage in Paste Modernism’s history.
Opening night on Friday 27 November, 6-9pm. Exhibition will continue until Sunday 24 January, 2016 open daily from 12-8pm except the Christmas season public holidays.
