This event has ended.

This exhibition focuses on works on paper, including prints, illustrated books, and selected drawings, that explore and manipulate the materiality of paper itself. Many of the featured artists emerged during the 1960s and 1970s, when an interest in everyday materials and nontraditional processes fueled a desire to re-investigate and redeploy some of the most familiar or humble mediums, including paper.
