Save Event: On Paper

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


An Arts Council Collection Touring Exhibition showcasing the work of acclaimed 20th-century and contemporary artists who work with paper.


The exhibition showcases the work of over 40 artists including Damien HirstRoy Lichtenstein, Eduardo Paolozzi, Cornelia Parker, Wolfgang Tillmans and Bridget Riley, among many others.  

Artists have used paper to construct three-dimensional objects as diverse as Gareth Jones’ cloakroom ticket cape and Art and Language’s jig-saw. Also considered will be works on paper which have been burnt, torn and cut by artists such as Roger AcklingCornelia ParkerTim Davies and Simon Periton.

Collage is perhaps the most obvious form of cut paper work and the show will include a small group of collages by Roland PenroseEduardo Paolozzi, John Stezaker and Tony Swain, as well as paper works which have been rubbed, folded and embossed by artists such as James Richards, Anna Barriball and Wolfgang Tillmans.

For some artists, the choice of a particular paper was an important consideration, and these include graph paper (Bridget RileyKenneth Martin), headed paper (Jason Coburn), an old envelope (Margaret Mellis), ordnance survey map (Tony Carter), blotting paper (Eleanor Wood) and corrugated card (Prunella Clough). Finally, a small group of artists have drawn paper itself in the form of theatre tickets, books and cards (Derek BoshierTania Kovats and Kate Davis).

This exhibition also includes a number of loans from the British Council Collection.
