Event Description: 

All the artworks in this exhibition are made from paper, used as a material in its own right rather than merely a surface to be painted or drawn upon.

Among the leading artists featured are Damien Hirst, Roy Lichtenstein, Bridget Riley, Gillian Ayres and Eduardo Paolozzi.

Included are large, three-dimensional objects constructed from paper such as Karla Black’s delicate and sensuous hanging structures and Brian Griffiths’ giant, futuristic cardboard computer.

Other artists, such as Roger Ackling and Cornelia Parker, have made art from burnt, torn and cut paper. Collage is represented with pieces by Roland Penrose and Eduardo Paolozzi, among others.

For some artists the choice of a particular paper is important, from graph paper, an old envelope to an ordnance survey map and corrugated card. The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue that will be available to buy in the Gallery shop.

Lunchtime exhibition tours

Every Thursday, 6 December 2018 to 31 January 2019 inclusive, 12.30pm-1pm. Free to Discovery Card and ticket holders.
