The First Cut


April 15th, 2013

The First Cut:  Paper at the Cutting Edge  explores how humble scrap of paper can be transformed— through cutting, folding and sculpting — into amazingly powerful creations that could be destroyed with a single tear.

The exhibition at Djanogly Art Gallery, Lakeside Arts Centre, University Park, opens on Wednesday 24 April  and runs until Sunday 9 June. 

The  show features  the work of over 30 international artists, who cite a diverse range of influences on their work, from globalisation and environmentalism, sexuality and slavery to architecture, fashion, fairytales and death metal.

The gallery is open 11am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday, and noon to 4pm Sundays and bank holidays. Admission is free.
