Under Construction: Collage from the Mint Museum explores the dynamic medium of collage, where materials are cut, torn, and layered to create new meanings and narratives. Featuring over 30 international artists and roughly 100 works of art, this exhibition examines the growth of the collage technique and aesthetic in the work of Romare Bearden and his colleagues from the 1950s to the present. It includes numerous works by Bearden, as well as collages by such notable artists as Tim Rollins and K.O.S., Sam Gilliam, Howardena Pindell, and James Rosenquist. Under Construction: Collage from the Mint Museum explores not only classic collages, but also the wide range of ways in which the technique inspired artists and impacted other forms of art, from painting and printmaking to photography and assemblage
