Folding Paper: The Infinite Possibilities of Origami
June 30 - September 29, 2013
Dynamic, innovative, and exquisite—origami, or folding paper, is not only a sophisticated art form, but it inspires innovative concepts in math and design and inventions in engineering, architecture, and technology.
The first major exhibition to explore the rich tradition of paper folding both in Japan and Europe, Folding Paper features approximately 140 works by more than 50 international artists.
This groundbreaking examination of paper as a medium for endless creativity also includes origami-related woodblock prints, photo murals, and videos, as well as an origami dome that visitors may enter and an interactive origami-making station.
