About the show and museum :
With this new group exhibition at Grant’s Tomb Gallery we celebrate the launch of The Collage Museum of San Francisco. Our vision with this new endeavor is to showcase local, national and international artists who work in the medium of collage, photo-montage, assemblage and related disciplines. There is a long and colorful 200 year history of artists and creative individuals working in this field from the early 19th century and throughout the 20th century as well as an explosion of collage-based artistry in these first decades of the 21st century.The Collage Museum of San Francisco will serve to spotlight these artists’ works and to offer a resource for the artistic community that may let us explore the limitless visions of creative imagination and encourage and expand the Art of Collage.
René Apallec : The works of the late René Apallec will be displayed for the first time in the United States. Mysterious and obscure, his compositions call out to us from a long vanished world that has since been swept away by the tumultuous era of the Great War. Come and explore this rare glimpse into the mind of a lost and forgotten artistic genius.
