This group exhibition mines the archive and examines the rich history of sculpture and three-dimensional papermaking at Dieu Donné. Since 1976, Dieu Donné has been on the forefront of an artistic movement to challenge the notion of paper as mere support of the image. The choice to create dimensional works in paper pulp is not just for its aesthetic and physical qualities but for the powerfully subversive, humorous, political, and emotional associations that paper and the printed word embody. Artists in this exhibition include Lynda Benglis, Mark Bradford, David Kennedy Cutler, E.V. Day, Lesley Dill, Ming Fay, Rosemarie Fiore, Ethan Greenbaum, Ann Hamilton, Jim Hodges, Lael Marshall, Saul Melman, Timothy E. Palmer, Brie Ruais, Jean Shin, Michael St. John, Richard Tuttle, Nari Ward, and B. Wurtz.
This exhibition is organized by Dieu Donné with the generous support of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation.
