Collecting as an Artistic Mode – Marty Spellerberg

Collecting as an Artistic Mode – Marty Spellerberg

Collecting as an artistic mode has taken various forms throughout history. Early expressions include the collection of studio props and the assembling of the products of colleagues. Depictions of art collections are later joined by “collection pictures,” consisting of numerous small images.(1) Cubists Braque and Picasso incorporated fragments from “reality” such as stenciled characters and facsimile materials into their pictures without the application of pictorial distortion.(2) This emergence of assemblage and collage signaled a reevaluation of collecting, but still within traditional media.(1)
