Artists And Audience Collaborate To Create U.Va. Art Museum Exhibit “The Paper Sculpture Show”

June 6, 2005 --

WHAT:         Exhibit — The Paper Sculpture Show

WHEN:         Saturday, June 18, through Sunday, Aug. 14

WHERE:       U.Va. Art Museum

                  155 Rugby Avenue

Artists and audience collaborate and explore the realm between two- and three-dimensional art in a new and inventive way in the University of Virginia Art Museum exhibit “The Paper Sculpture Show.”

Twenty-nine artists were asked to design a paper sculpture to be cut out and assembled using basic materials. Each project will be displayed in stacks within an exhibit designed by artist Allan Wexler. Visitors are encouraged to “complete the artworks” by cutting out and assembling the sculptures of their choice. The visitors’ creations will remain in the gallery after they leave, resulting in an exhibition that will grow and change throughout its duration. Subsequent visitors will have the opportunity to see multiple versions of the same piece, each made unique by the hand of the fabricator.

Artists in the exhibition include Janine Antoni, The Art Guys, David Brody, Luca Buvoli, Francis Cape and Liza Phillips, Minerva Cuevas, Seong Chun, E.V. Day, Nicole Eisenman, Spencer Finch, Charles Goldman, Rachel Harrison, Stephen Hendee, Patrick Killoran, Glenn Ligon, Cildo Meireles, Helen Mirra, Aric Obrosey, Ester Partegas, Paul Ramirez Jonas, Akiko Sakaizumi, David Shrigley, Eve Sussman, Sarah Sze, Fred Tomaselli, Pablo Vargas Lugo, Charles Ware, Olav Westphalen and Allan Wexler.

This traveling exhibition was organized by the nonprofit organization Independent Curators International in New York City, and in collaboration with the Sculpture Center in Long Island City, N.Y., and Cabinet magazine.

The museum is open to the public free of charge Tuesday through Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
