Paul Butler’s Collage Party
Editors: Wayne Baerwaldt, Vanessa Kroeker
Authors: Wayne Baerwaldt, Paul Butler, Matthew Higgs, David Liss
Winnipeg-based artist and itinerant gallerist, Paul Butler has, over the last ten years, fashioned a performative college-making event called Collage Party. Butler has visited various cities around the world to organize collage-making sessions lasting one to twelve days. Invited guests and passersby are asked to bring collaring materials or are handed a stack of magazines, newspapers and other materials to which they can apply scissors, glue, tape and other adhesives to develop individually constructed or collectively organized collages. Butler selects the 'successful' collages from the heaps of art and artmaking debris scattered throughout a typical Collage Party space and exhibits a selection of collages on the walls.
