In the visual arts, "ASSEMBLAGE" is an artistic process that consists of making 3D or 2D compositions by putting together found objects.

​Though the term was not in use until the 1950s, the origin of the artistic practice dates to the early 20th century avant garde movements that sought to challenge traditional artistic media. Here are some famous artists who worked with Assemblage/Found Art: Braque, Dubuffet Marcel Duchamp, Picasso, Joseph Cornell, Robert Mallary and Robert Rauschenberg.

ASSEMBLAGE ART

"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.


.I found I could say things with found objects, color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I've had no words for."
