Graham Rawle, Julie Doucet and the Art of Collage

Sabin, Roger (2008) Graham Rawle, Julie Doucet and the Art of Collage. In: In the Fold: Between Art and Narrative, April 2008, Chelsea College of Art and Design. (Unpublished)

Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Sabin, Roger

The conference aimed to ‘explore new ways to think about interfaces between narrative and art’. My paper contrasted the collage work of Graham Rawle, who uses cut-ups from Women’s Own and other UK women’s magazines, with that of Julie Doucet, a French Canadian artist who uses cut-ups from Elle. Theoretical touch-points included Situationism and punk.
