PAPER: PULL, PUSH, PRESS
2018 WORKSPACE PROGRAM EXHIBITION*
December 20, 2018 – February 25, 2019
reception: Wednesday, january 16, 2019, 6:00 – 8:00 pm
With a focus on experimentation and collaboration, Dieu Donné founded the Workspace Program in 1990 to provide emerging New York State based artists with the opportunity to explore hand papermaking and to utilize its processes to produce a body of work. In this unique program, artists work collaboratively with master papermakers, which is essential to providing artists an opportunity to create work in a medium that is outside of their traditional practice.
The program offers the artists the opportunity to explore a new medium while bringing their own practice to the creative possibilities inherent in handmade paper. Working with full support from a dedicated studio collaborator, each of the four artists created a body of unique works over the course of the year-long residency.
