During its life time, collage has been used to push the boundaries of what is considered fine art, fuel the rally against propaganda, and question the effects of popular culture on individuals. 

Cut + Paste considers how this practice has played out in a New Zealand context, and showcases artists who select and rearrange images and subjects to challenge the way we see the world, particularly through the mainstream media.

Artists featured in Cut + Paste include Eve Armstrong , Margaret Aull, Richard Bryant, Rob Cherry, Daniel Crooks, Gordon Crook, Tjalling De Vries, Don Driver, Jaqueline Fraser, James R. Ford, Claire Harris, Jae Hoon Lee, Robert Hood, Gavin Hurley, Richard Killeen, Kerry Ann Lee, Peter Madden, Adrienne Millwood, Patrick Pound, J.K Russ , Richard Reddaway, Ava Seymour, Gordon Walters, Kate Woods, Ans Westra and Wayne Youle.
