The Dieu Donné Workspace Program residency includes introduction to the medium and process, 5 days in the studio with a dedicated papermaking collaborator, 2 papermaking workshops, an exhibition opportunity in the Dieu Donné ground floor gallery, and digital documentation of all the work created during the residency.
The collaborations and the finished artwork are documented by photography
and video and included in the Dieu Donné archive for study
by artists, students, collectors, and curators. The artist owns all
artworks produced during the residency; however, each artist is asked
to donate two pieces to the Dieu Donné Archive of Paper Art. The archive
is used as a study collection and for exhibition purposes. Dieu Donné
presents exhibitions in its gallery and curates off-site exhibitions
of paper art, in which Workspace artists are often included.
Dieu Donné provides sheet forming capabilities up to 40"x60".
The facility includes 2,000 square feet of wet/dry floor space, a 2,400
PSI hydraulic press, two 10 lb. and one 2 lb. Hollander beater, worktables,
studio tools and a wide range of papermaking fibers, vats, moulds/deckles,
felts, boards, glass/metal sheets, cotton cloths and neutral pH blotters
used to dry pressed sheets.
