Collagistas Festival, Dublin, Ireland (Temple Bar Gallery + Studios), 16-20 September (upcoming), "Big Village, Small World"

This event is a celebration of collage art and a good reason for collage artists to meet each other once a year in a different country. There is only one rule; each artist has to participate with one new artwork never shown before on the internet or in any gallery. Collage works that is! Vibrant, thrilling, exciting, fresh, and sometimes disturbing pieces of art. Remixed and shuffled to sub-reality. Or so to say by a French poet named Comte De Lautreamont: ´as beautiful as the chance encounter of a sewing machine and an umbrella on a dissecting table´. The theme of this year's exhibition is "Big Village, Small World".
