DESCRIPTION

80WSE Galleries of the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development at New York University presents 'Papertails', curated by Valerie Hammond and Kiki Smith.

Focusing on paper as a material with unlimited range, Hammond and Smith have selected fourteen artists for this exhibition who reverence the many qualities of paper in their work. This common element brings multiple types of creativity and process together from print making and collage to photography, painting and sculpture.

Hammond and Smith, recognized as inspired and innovative artists, co-teach an advanced printmaking course in the Steinhardt School's Art and Art Professions Department. They share an enthusiasm for the limitless possibilities of paper, the new connections between medias and the endless potential of the physical surface of paper. As the curators of Papertails they have selected a group of artists from their community whose work with paper each 'admires and finds inspiring.'

In their curators' statement, Hammond and Smith write: 'Each artist's use of paper is a vital and integral part of his or her practice, and each finds a unique approach to working with the material.'

Papertails is accompanied by a catalogue and features an essay by the artist and printmaker Maggie Wright.

It will open September 14 and remain on view through November 5, 2011.

80WSE Galleries is located at 80 Washington Square East (between W. 4th Street and Washington Place). Subway: N&R (8th St. Broadway).
Gallery hours: Tues. to Sat. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
