Collage

Stage manager Mikel Frank on the transcending and transformative nature of collage.

I may get in trouble someday for using these images, but as of now, I just kind of go for it. It's caution to the wind.

  • Mikel Frank
    1280852
  • My name is Mikel Frank, and I am the stage manager at the Metropolitan Museum in charge of production. As important

  • to me as my job here at the Museum, is what I do outside the Museum. I'm an artist. I have a master's degree in painting, and I love art history. I've worked here for twenty-five years

  • and I just was floored by the amount of

  • Madonna and Childs there are, and different ways of

  • translating that idea. Collage for me is something

  • that I started with in undergraduate school. I've always been interested in sort of excavating imagery.

  • And what I wanted to do was take an old iconic painting, which is the Duccio, and

  • bring it up to the present day. Collage

  • goes back you know to 200 A.D. when paper was invented. It was a craft and the word actually came from the French papier collé which means glued paper.

  • It wasn't until the Cubists came along, and turned it into an art form.

  • The Dadaists would take nonsensical images, sometimes they'd get up on a ladder or chair and drop the paper and see where it fell.

  • Collage can tell a story and create an idea that wasn't there before by bringing the past up to the present, putting them together, and taking A and B and creating C.

  • Romare Bearden made an entire block

  • of interesting moments in time.

  • He has people in the windows doing different things.

  • He does an Ascension.

  • He has a jazz quartet on the street. Just an amazing conglomeration of life being

  • this kind of jazzy thing that happens outside in the neighborhood. You're taking

  • elements from all kinds of different places and transcending the material and making it into something new in a way that sort of redefines

  • a little bit about what your idea of art may be, a little bit about what my idea of art is, where it's becoming something other than what

  • it was meant to be. I met Robert Rauschenberg and that was the ultimate experience for me in a way, because he's always been a hero of mine. He invented this idea of taking things from the garbage. Winter Pool has this ladder in it that does exactly what I think great art should do. It transforms it, instead of the ladder being a thing you climb on, all of a sudden it's looking like it's something that maybe holds up the piece.

  • As an artist using appropriated images, when you take it out of context and you put it into a place that is of your own creation

  • you're changing the meaning of it. There are collage homages. There are portraits

  • so instead of doing a traditional portrait, you're taking elements of this person's life. I can use, I can use a picture of Rauschenberg or I can use a painting that he did in a way that changes the meaning of it.

  • And I may get in trouble someday for using these images, but as of now, I just kind of go for it.

  • It's caution to the wind.
