Circleculture Gallery is pleased to announce its upcoming group show Paper Works. The exhibition focuses on paper as a medium, its extensive variety and creative potential.
Paper is one of the oldest mediums in visual art and gained its most influence through techniques such as letter pressing and the graphic arts. Within the twentieth century paper’s role as a neutral carrier of paint and text decreased and instead it was the material itself that became of importance. Nowadays, especially amongst Urban Artists, paper has again become a significant medium, from graphic design and illustration, to silkscreen printing and wheat paste cut outs and posters in the streets.
Paper Works will showcase explorations of the medium from Christian Awe, Kelsey Brookes, Jaybo Monk, XOOOOX, Katrin Fridriks, Stefan Strumbel, Anthony Lister, Kevin Earl Taylor, Anton Unai, Marco Grassi, Various & Gould, Aaron Rose and Oskar. Through the presentation of different techniques and concepts this exhibition of paperworks makes one thing sure: paper works.
