Piecing It Together

15 Black American Assemblage & Collage Artists

While American artists like Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg have long been considered the progenitors of assemblage and collage art in the US, there is an extensive history of Black American artists working in the medium. In recent decades, the representation and inclusion of 20th-century artists like Romare Bearden and Betye Saar in cultural institutions and art collections have substantially increased. However, there is still more to be done to understand the Black American experience as expressed through the assemblage and collage art of emerging artists working today.
