slash: paper under the knife museum of arts and design, new york october 7, 2009 – april 4, 2010

the museum of arts and design will begin a new exhibition next month dedicated to the phenomenon of cut paper in contemporary art. the exhibition will feature numerous paper based works by 50 international artists, including 12 site-specific works in the museum. these pieces will be built and installed during the show giving the publicc a chance to peer into the creative process. while paper has a traditional role as a surface for art, this exhibt explores artwork that uses paper as a medium in itself. curated by the museum’s chief curator, david revere mcfadden, ‘slash’ is the third exhibit in MAD’s materials and process series after previous shows on knitting and embroidery. artists on show include thomas demand, olafur eliasson, tom friedman, noriko ambe, judy pfaff and chris kenny, among others.
