CTRL+P: Dada, surrealism, Guided by Voices, and countless others have used collage to striking effect.

Collage has the potential to be so much more than a junior year vision board. In the hands of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque—the cubist masters who helped popularize collage—it is high art. From these earliest cuttings and pastings, entire movements were birthed. Dadaism and Surrealism owe a great deal to the concept of collage, as well as the practice itself; the same goes for modern graphic design. “Paper Cuts: Large-Scale Collage” is open now. Artist talk Jul 22 with contributors John Hundt, Laura Deem, Benicia Gardner and Mary Anne Kluth.Paper Cuts
