Collage played a crucial role in the development of modernism in the early 20th century. After its advent in Paris in the 1910s, collage became a favorite medium of artists working on both sides of the Atlantic. Modern Mashup: Collecting Collage explores this cutting-edge history through works in the McNay collection. The exhibition features artwork by José Bernal, Henry Botkin, and Stephanie Kirschen-Cole, among others.

Modern Mashup: Collecting Collage is organized for the McNay Art Museum by Rafael Fernando Gutierrez Jr., the inaugural Douglass Foundation Intern in Curatorial Studies; and Lyle W. Williams, Curator of Prints and Drawings, Curator of Modern Art. Funding is most generously provided by the Elizabeth Huth Coates Charitable Foundation of 1992.
