Society Cut-Ups: Victorians and the Art of Photocollage

June 5, 2010

Join Playing with Pictures exhibition curator Liz Siegel for an exploration of the whimsical and sometimes surreal world of Victorian photocollage. By cutting up photographic portraits and pasting them into elaborate watercolor scenes they painted, aristocratic British women made work that is at once perfectly Victorian and ahead of its time, challenging both photographic convention and societal tradition.  

Elizabeth Siegel is the Associate Curator of Photography, Art Institute of Chicago.
