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. Expanding beyond its core group of collage provocateurs and instigators, the Brooklyn edition of the IWCS is certainly founders Rubén B and Max-o-matic’s most ambitious exhibition yet, gathering 35 artists from 10 countries. The show promises to reexamine the often misunderstood medium of collage with an interactive exhibition of stunning experimental art works, inspirational artist talks and a live collage round table featuring many of today’s most influential cutters.

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
