Cut & Paste
September 17 – December 11, 2014
Cleveland Clinic Art Exhibition Area – between Q and G buildings
While the term “cut and paste” has taken on a new meaning in the digital age, contemporary artists continue to stick with tradition and use collage and paper cutting as a way to extend and explore imagery. The artists in this exhibition use faux fur, candy wrappers, found photographs, even fruit stickers — everything is fair game. The results are both intricate and surprising and speak to the different ways that artists use the materials around them to make their work. The exhibition includes artworks from the Cleveland Clinic collection as well as works on loan by an international group of artists working in a variety of different media.
