slash: paper under the knife

Ahh, I wish I were in NYC right now. The new show at the Museum of Arts and Design looks brilliant.

Slash: Paper Under The Knife
October 7, 2009 - April 4, 2010

Slash: Paper Under the Knife takes the pulse of the international art world's renewed interest in paper as a creative medium and source of artistic inspiration, examining the remarkably diverse use of paper in a range of art forms. Slash is the third exhibition in MAD's Materials and Process series, which examines the renaissance of traditional handcraft materials and techniques in contemporary art and design. The exhibition surveys unusual paper treatments, including works that are burned, torn, cut by lasers, and shredded. A section of the exhibition will focus on artists who modify books to transform them into sculpture, while another will highlight the use of cut paper for film and video animations.

Watch video intro and sneak peek and see more photos of the show on the MAD website.

Looks interesting.
The Real Life exhibit ( at the Glenbow museum has just opened, so we'll head over there at some point soon. Want to come too?
