This Arts Council Collection touring exhibition showcases the work of acclaimed 20th-century and contemporary artists who work with paper.
Looking beyond the mark-making of drawing to consider the material itself, this exhibition explores how artists have used paper as the focus of their work in creative and unusual ways.
The artists represented use paper not only as a medium but also as the very matter of their art: it is the subject and the object, the means of production and the artefact produced.
Demonstrating a range of approaches to collage, drawing and sculpture, over 40 artists are featured including Damien Hirst, Roy Lichtenstein, Eduardo Paolozzi, Cornelia Parker, Wolfgang Tillmans and Bridget Riley, among many others.
