Dada Centennial: Day of the Dead

Call for Works! Deadline Oct 29, 2016

The International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction (collagemuseum.com) with the International Society of Assemblage and Collage Artists (collagist.org)  in Santa Fe, New Mexico invites you to contribute to our celebration of the 100 year Anniversary of DADA! Because The Archives are in Santa Fe, we will also be setting up our first annual Mexican Style Ofrenda (offering) to honor our artistic ancestors. This year we will be celebrating the collage/assemblage Dada artists including Kurt Schwitters, Hannah Höch, Man Ray, John Heartfield, Marcel Duchamp, Jean Arp, Max Ernst, Raoul Hausmann, etc. read more

This summer, Alison Knowles is making a salad—and she needs your help.

The legendary performance artist will be performing her seminal Make A Salad (1962) at Art Basel. However this is no ordinary meal. Performers will prepare various salad ingredients before emptying the contents onto a large tarp. Fair visitors and onlookers can participate by helping to toss the salad high into the air, before it is served. read more
