Based in Mexico City, PASTE UP! It is a festival of contemporary collage that includes all the disciplines contained in this technique. Through workshops, exhibitions, screenings, conferences and discussions we seek to create a broad community with particular interests in the collage and its different expressions. For a month, PASTE UP! It will have free access activities for all the public in multiple venues in Mexico City. In addition, we will have the participation of artists –both national and international– and experts in the discipline, who will offer specialized workshops and conferences on contemporary collage, addressing its history, importance and social and cultural impact that has today.
In this first edition, PASTE UP! seeks to connect collage artists with the public, generating a true interest in the discipline; create a dialogue between different styles and aesthetics, which will be shown in each exhibition as part of our activities; as well as position Mexican artists and Mexico in the theme of collage.
PASTE UP! it is a tribute to collage and the global culture that it entails.
