redacted islip art museum

“Redaction,” is often used synonymously with the term “censorship” and has a complex meaning. Through multiple redactions, literature can be morphed, history rewritten, entire hypotheses thwarted or converted. The visual brain can be upended with disarming, often thrilling, results. REDACTED examines how revamped visual information can variously disguise, alter, enhance, or camouflage the meaning of a painting, sculpture, video, or photography.

REDACTED is an exhibition concept encompassing the sort of editorial decisions that are manifest in myriad representations such as literature, current events, historical documents and aspects of contemporary life in general.

Annual Open Call 2014
Mash Up: Collages in Mixed Media
June 29 – September 14, 2014
Reception: July 13 from 1-4pm
Curated By Stephen Lamia, Ph.D. (Dowling College)

It has been slightly over one hundred years since Picasso and Braque experimented with the then new art form called "collage." To mark that ground-breaking innovation, The Islip Art Museum announces its Annual Open Call for artists to contribute work displaying this

century-old art form. As has been previously done, we are calling upon the global community of artists to submit their work for an exhibition featuring collages in mixed media.

This exhibition promotes and encourages artists to employ both conventional and unconventional ideas about collages, especially those that incorporate two or more media into them.
