Pumapapel: Art in Paper

Third and Fourth Floor galleries
July 13 - November 6, 2010

With paper as the main attraction, Pumapapel: Art in Paper showcases the beauty and versatility of paper as an artistic medium, and explores paper in a range of art forms.

The exhibit features the works of seven artists, artisans, and designers who use paper not just as a surface, but a source of inspiration in its own light—Tony Gonzales, Tes Pasola, Pandy Aviado, Joey Cobcobo, Impy Pilapil, Wataru Sakuma, and Asao Shimura.

Highlights of the show include a floating Zen garden installation, textiles and robes, limited-edition calendars, and couture from students of the School of Fashion and the Arts—all made out of various types of paper.
