Show Description:
Curated by Jamie Brunson

Reclamation: New Trends in Bay Area Collage and Assemblage included selections by regional artists who have introduced fresh content and technique into the practice of cut-paper collage and found object assemblage, injecting these traditions with new vitality and possibilities. 

Reclamation highlighted new approaches to process and content including digitalization, collaboration, abstraction, and politicization. While some of these methods extend the working processes that have conventionally been used to fabricate collage and assemblage, others influence the content in this contemporary work. 

Jamie Brunson is a painter, teacher, critic and independent curator. She studied painting at the California College of the Arts (BFA, 1978) and at Mills College (MFA, 1983). As an independent curator, Brunson focuses on presenting the work of lesser-known or emerging artists in conjunction with work by established, mature artists to underscore the equivalences in their work. She also looks for patterns of ideological or thematic connection within the regional arts community. Brunson believes that working artists often have access to, and recognize, accomplished artists who have been overlooked by the commercial art establishment. She uses her curatorial practice to bring these artists to the forefront, by creating a context for their work.
