Assemblage describes sculptural artworks made by combining disparate, found objects. As art forms, assemblage and collage (two-dimensional artworks created with found imagery) date back to the early twentieth century Dada movement, but the style gained renewed vigor in the 1950s and 60s. Like Pop, conceptual art, and contemporary ceramics, assemblage art challenged traditional definitions of art.

The assemblage, Pop, conceptual, and ceramic artworks featured below are those that were included in the fall 2018 exhibition First Glimpse: Introducing The Buck Collection.
