24 Sept-21 Dec 2008. The modern conception of photomontage, the method of combining and manipulating photographic elements, emerged for the first time towards the end of World War Two in Cubist, Futurist and Dadaist collage and was a radical extension of techniques and creative attitudes. Cut-out photographs and fragments of newsprint from illustrated journals were pasted into drawings and paintings. This exhibition explores the history of modern image making through the work of these great innovators who used scissors, scalpel and retouching brush to create modern photomontages.
