“Cut N’ Mix: Contemporary Collage” explores the work of more than two dozen Latino artists experimenting in ways that expand the gestures of cutting paper, mixing various mediums together. So-called traditional collages are included — in which papers, photographs, prints, and magazine images are placed over other layers of paper — as well as more “extreme” versions of the craft, such as layered and burnt linoleum, overlaid cardboard and fabric, gigantic collaged works, and pop-style drawings collaged into digital videos. The exhibition includes established artists who are veterans of collage and new generations of artists experimenting with this malleable medium. El Museo del Barrio, 1230 Fifth Ave. at 104th St. Through Dec. 12: Tue.-Sat., 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Admission is $9; $5 for students & seniors. Free for those under 12, and for seniors on Wed.
