Opening Friday, June 15th, from 630PM - 8PM
On view through Saturday, August 11th
This panel will address the current role of hand papermaking within current residency and workspace models at both the Center for Book and Paper Arts and Dieu Donné. How do these organizations make hand papermaking available and accessible to artists for whom hand papermaking was not already a primary medium? Featuring both interdisciplinary artists who have completed projects within these institutions and the master papermakers with whom they collaborated, the dialogue will address the challenges and opportunities of collaborative hand papermaking; the relevance of hand papermaking across disciplines; and efforts to promote hand papermaking as a process relevant to interdisciplinary art and craft practices.
