Collage in Motion

Collage has a long history with animation, from Lotte Reiniger’s silhouette animations from the 1920s and 1930s to the surrealist films of Joseph Cornell to Terry Gilliam’s wacky introductions to Monty Python’s Flying Circus to the array of commercials that use collage to tell a story. Animation provides collage artists a different way to tell stories and potentially opens new paths to sharing their work.

Artists include: Jessica Ashman, Lisa Barcy, Martha Colburn, Jo Dery, Gretchen Hasse, Amy Lockhart and Marc Bell, Jodie Mack, Matt Marsden, Miwa Matreyek, Laurie O’Brien, Kathleen Quillian, and Paloma Trecka
