Art on Paper returns to NYC September 9–12 with 100 galleries featuring top modern and contemporary paper-based art. Art on Paper’s medium-driven focus lends itself to significant projects and unique moments that set the fair apart and established an important destination for the arts in New York City.
Art on Paper’s public projects will return with large-scale installations that push the boundaries of work on paper. This year’s special projects include:
- An installation by Samuelle Green that uses hundreds of thousands of book pages rolled into the stitched fencing of chicken wire to create an undulating, riverlike structure. The artist’s work, especially the large scale installations, reference the complex and often overlooked art forms found in nature, and thus inspire contemplation.
- ESPO’s Art World, the storefront gallery devoted to the art of Stephen Powers, will build an immersive print-making studio offering very limited, affordable editions, while also printing on whatever the public brings them for free. Whether it be a piece of paper, a pizza box, a t-shirt, the back of a signed Picasso etching — any object that fits will be pressed.
