Livestream: MOPA In Focus, episode 4– Cut + Paste: Exploring Photomontage

April 17, 2020 @ 10:00 am - April 17, 2020 @ 10:20 am

We’re embracing the need to innovate how people access MOPA’s art by turning the lens on us. MOPA is livestreaming weekly shows on a dependable schedule using Facebook Live and YouTube Live.

Cut + Paste: Exploring Photomontage

While we may think that combining two or more photographs is a newer trend made possible by digital technology, artists have blended images in creative ways since the earliest days of photography.

From rough cut outs of print media to seamless digital blending of composite scenes, join us for a dive into MOPA’s permanent collection to explore the idea of photomontage in photography.

Artists in focus:

  • Ni Youyu
  • Harry Bowers
  • Byron Wolfe
  • Ruud van Empel
  • Julie Blackmon
  • Ysabel LeMay
