The International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction

Cecil Touchon heads up the The International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction. He is an active collage artist, working on exhibits, teaching, and also promoting collage whenever possible. It is hard not to run into his work or his site if you are searching the internet for information about collage. I have worked with Cecil a bit, a long time ago we were working on a Hannah Hoch site. He is a very helpful man, and also very creative. It is nice to work with people that have strong interests, strong creative desires and also that will go the extra mile in the effort department.

Through the museum, Cecil has acquired some very strong Russian Constructivism works. I really liked these. You can feel their industrialness. So masculine!

Cecil is also spearheading collage exchanges. "The bulk of the museum's current collection currently consisting of 700+ collages has been collected since the year 1999 through a series of mail exchanges called the Baker's Dozen designed by Cecil Touchon as a mail art project and coordinated by Dale Copeland. Additional works have been collected through unsolicited donations from various artists. " At this point you can participate in an exchange twice a year. You can find out more about it here.
