Assaf Evron: Collages

The works in this series of photographic collages rethinks Mies van der Rohe’s collages in the context of his existing Midwest architectural projects. The collages are studies in possible architectural interventions in Mies’ buildings based on his own collage strategies. In his collages Mies uses photographs to represent landscape seen through the windows of his speculative grid line architectures. The window modules in his collages operate as a platform for photography, an idea that is the foundation of this project.

Assaf Evron © Rea Ben-David Assaf Evron’s work investigates the nature of vision and the ways in which it reflects socially constructed structures where he applies photographic thinking in various two and three-dimensional media. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums internationally. Evron holds an MA from The Cohn Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas at Tel Aviv University. He earned his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he currently teaches. He has received numerous awards and grants, most recently The Graham Foundation (2017).
