Cut/PASTE: Collage as Methodology in Video Art

Ranging in scope from the industrious video installation by Samara Golden, to the stop-motion imagery of Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir, Spencer Douglass/Gustavo Herrrera, David Jones, and Kelly Lynn Sears, to the lo-fi meets techno-geek confluences by Tyler Calkin, Morrisa Maltz and Jimmy Joe Roche. Rubbing the post-structuralist work of Shana Moulton against Brian Bress’ fractured narratives, the pieces of the exhibition called cut/PASTE are collected from 11 young contemporary artists who employ collage as their practice in video art.

cut/PASTE is curated by Annie Wharton, an artist, writer, curator, and co-director of The Company (www.thecompanyart.com), a gallery in Los Angeles.
