“It is the most familiar form of art object, the `work on paper.’ But what about art created not on traditional paper, but out of it? Linen, cotton, abaca, pigments, water, and methyl cellulose: since 1976 a small, non-profit paper studio in New York City has empowered some of the most influential artists of the day to experiment with these and other papermaking materials.
Pure Pulp: Contemporary Artists Working in Paper at Dieu Donné, an exhibition designed to convey the range and vitality of artmaking over the course of 40 years at Dieu Donné, one of the world’s leading collaborative papermaking studios. Twenty emerging and established artists are represented, among them Jim Hodges, Arlene Schechet, William Kentridge, Richard Tuttle, and Glenn Ligon. Most are not known for their work on paper, but, rather, discovered a parallel practice in papermaking at Dieu Donné.” — Wellin Museum of Art
