Cut + Paste: Inside Out is an exhibition of exploratory collage created in collaboration with dozens of youth from across Calgary, led by artist May G N. Each of these self-portraits is driven by a mandate for self-expression, offering an opportunity for stress and worry-free process-based art making. Free from the harsh conventions of formal representation, young artists were instead asked to pull apart, salvage, cut, and paste together something that best reflects who they are.

Through the use of silhouettes, Cut + Paste: Inside Out invites viewers to imagine each artwork as a window into the artist. Peer into the portals, imagine the person who created them, and glimpse a small piece their inner universe.

Thanks and gratitude to Carya, Centre for Sexuality, Discovering Choices, Skipping Stone, and to Calgary Arts Development for the generous funding in support of this free public program.
