jim hodges in group exhibition at hirshhorn museum, washington d.c., USA

18 April 2013
Jim Hodges is included in a group exhibition at the Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C, USA. The exhibition ‘Over, Under, Next: Experiments in Mixed Media, 1913 - Present' explores the ways that collage and assemblage have evolved over the last century.

Butterfly wings, glass shards, doll parts, crumpled automotive metal, jigsaw puzzle pieces, clothing, straight pins, furniture, and colored sand-these are just some of the materials in Over, Under, Next, an exhibition of approximately 100 examples of collage and assemblage, primarily drawn from the Hirshhorn's collection. Before 1913, when Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque first incorporated commonplace, mass-produced images and found objects into their art, everyday materials were regarded as bric-a-brac. Since then, artists internationally have embraced the idea that art could scavenged from fragments and detritus in the world around us.

‘Over, Under, Next: Experiments in Mixed Media, 1913 - Present' runs from 18 April to 8 September 2013.
