CUTTERS2010, a group exhibition curated by James Gallagher, reaffirms the new recognition of collage that has come about of late, featuring new and recent collage works by thirteen international artists. Collage is in no way a new medium, having been practiced popularly for the past few centuries and less popularly for many before that; however as today‘s world edges closer to chaos, inundated with imagery and information, collage enjoys a newly found place amoung necessary outlets of expression.
Being a medium that incorporates fragments into a larger whole, in its way controlling the chaos - or at least pausing a moment long enough for examination - collage is an unexpected yet strikingly appropriate means of channeling and processing the world around us. On the increase again, partly as a result of such postmodernist concerns as pluralism, multiplicity and hybridity - and partly due to the sheer abundance of waste at five hundred years after the invention of the printing press - collage is the recycling, reinterpretation and reprocessing of our collective past, present, and future.
Using varied techniques and materials, each of the artists exploits the formal and ideological power of juxtaposing found images, creating a range of work that encompasses everything from social and political commentaries to personal confessions, not to mention surrealist fantasies, composed of shreds from real life and from the imaginary.
The exhibition features:
Cless‘ frenzied scenes, Liam Crockard‘s layered accidents, Valero Doval‘s delicate vintage, Erik Foss‘s dirty girls, April Gertler‘s quiet relations, Jason Glasser’s visual soul, Sophie Kern‘s magical worlds, Matt Lipps’ provocative silhouettes, Max-O-Matic’s controlled chaos, Justin Mortimer‘s displaced limbs, Brion Nuda Rosch‘s iconic shapes, Mario Wagner‘s graphic stories, and pool gallery artist and CUTTERS curator James Gallagher‘s private moments, composed of his signature palette that includes vintage sex manuals, Sears catalogues and antique flea-market finds. One by one, each of these artists produces arresting contemporary works: from CUTTERS in Brooklyn, US, in late 2009 to CUTTERS2010, James Gallagher brings the newly invigorated art form of collage to Pool Gallery and Berlin.

Exhibition in Essenheim
These pieces will be shown and available as Art Edition prints at Essenheimer Kunstverein in Essenheim Germany, which is not too far from Frankfurt.
Invited by German Essenheimer Kunstverein, Gestalten chose a special selection of artists working at the intersection of art, illustration and design. They are young and dauntless, sometimes provocative, yet always making a difference.
The show is also serving as a precursor of Gestalten's forthcoming Art Edition series which will be available soon at http://www.gestalten.com .
The exhibition runs from October 31st to November 16th 2008.
