Museum 52 is delighted to present ‘Works on Paper’. The exhibition showcases works that whilst differing in concept are unified by their medium. In its economy and simplicity paper allows the core of each artists work to become the focus. The simplicity of either the line, the print, the cut, or the collage, becomes both a conceptual mark and an intimate sign of the most immediate of processes - mark to paper. Often preparatory, never subsidiary, works on paper offer a view into the complexities of each artist’s practice.
