Curated by Ruben B, Max-o-matic and Charles Wilkin, the International Weird Collage Show celebrates its 8th edition and US debut at The Invisible Dog Art Center this Saturday.

Participating artists: Rubén B, André Bergamin, Molly Bosley,  Dennis Busch, Julia Busch, Joe Castro, Jordan Clark, Cless, Tamar Cohen, Isabelle Cordemans, William Crump, Harold Diaz, Fred Free, John Gall, James Gallagher, Alan Ganev, Sr. García, Goster, Grande, Diego Guzman, Micosch Holland, Ashkan Honarvar, Victoria Ulrikke Iles, Geoff Kim, Jon Legere, Max-o-matic, Sylvia Stølan, Brandi Strickland, Sweet Suede, John Whitlock, Oliver Wiegner, Charles Wilkin, Niko Vartiainen, Anthony Zinonos and Mario Zoots.

Opening: Saturday, April 19th, 2014, 6-10pm, free admission
