This show surveys collage practices in the Bay Area, including related practices of decollage, assemblage, photomontage and detournement. Collage will be conceived broadly as an "allegorical" technique of signification that relies on methods of "confiscation, superimposition and fragmentation," as Benjamin Buchloh observed in his 1980 theorization of collage and montage. Curated by Gwen Allen.

Artist Shenny Cruces received her Master of Fine Arts from SF State in 2011. Since that time she has taught and exhibited widely. Cruces seeks out objects that were once valued but have since found their way to flea markets and other such places. She then casts each individual object in porcelain and uses these reproductions to create her installations.
