2015 ‘Paperwork’ Exhibition

In conjunction with Craft Victoria, Brunswick Street Gallery held a Satellite Event centring on paper craftspersonship .  Focusing on the materiality and labour of craftwork and art creation, Paperwork was an opportunity for artists to demonstrate their skill and new perspectives with paper.  Vastly used and mass produced, paper is the humble bearer of core communication such as written word, design, and visual arts. As well as bulk material for industrial, medical, household and recreational purposes.   How has paper been manipulated to serve as an artistic expression in itself? What are the new ideas and issues arising with the material? Especially with increased environmental concern and the digital age of production. A group of local and interstate artists demonstrated their knowledge and skill with the medium.
