With the Schwitters show at Tate and the current interest in digital photographic techniques, we may be seeing more shows exploring the role of collage and photomontage. this looks like a greattouring show from the Arts Council Collection with the works of Nicholson, Ager and Penrose as well as more international contemporary artists. The show runs until 12th May 2013.

See the BBC slideshow of the works here..and the previous exhibitions here...

'The Arts Council Collection touring exhibition 'Transmitter/Receiver' traces some of the uses of collage in British art from the first influences of the Parisian avant-garde, in the early work of Ben Nicholson and British Surrealists Eileen Agar and Roland Penrose, through to present day practitioners such as Steve Claydon, David Noonan, Idris Khan and Grayson Perry. Bringing together over 50 works, it includes traditional collage on paper, alongside painting, sculpture, film and slide projections, all drawn from the Arts Council Collection.
