The technique of collage has been incredibly influential in 20th-century art. This publication examines the ways in which the potential of collage has been exploited by a broad range of artists, and looks in particular at the work of Peter Blake. One of Britain's most popular artists, Blake is also an avid collector, and has curated the show at Tare Liverpool that this publication celebrates. He has sifted carefully both through the works at the Tare and through his own fascinating collection to reveal the dispersal of collage in very surprising directions.Peter Blake: About Collage opens with an interview in which the artist discusses his own use of the technique, his influences, and his many collaborations with musicians, writers and performers. An essay by Dawn Ades explores the history and significance of collage from the early 20th century through to the present day, and investigates the impact of collage in the work of artists ranging from Kurt Schwitters to Joseph Cornell and Tracey Emin.
