NEW YORK, NY.- Art on Paper returns to downtown Manhattan's Pier 36 from September 8th through 11th with 100 galleries featuring top modern and contemporary paper-based art. Art on Paper's medium-driven focus continues to bring about unique and powerful projects - visual, experiential moments that have set the fair apart and established Art on Paper as an important destination for the arts in New York City.

Visitors will also be treated to any array of innovative paper-based artwork, featuring a strong presence from returning NY Galleries such as SEIZAN, Muriel Guepin Gallery, Tuleste Factory, The Tolman Collection of New York, Sugarlift, Walter Wickiser Gallery, Vietnamese Contemporary Fine Art, Heliotrope, and Accola Griefen Fine Art, as well as other new and returning domestic and international exhibitors, including Electric Works, K. Imperial Fine Art, CK Contemporary, Sous Les Etoiles Gallery, Koplin Del Rio, Spanierman Modern, Richard Levy Gallery, Tulsete Factory, Beatriz Esguerra Art, Dublin's Stoney Road Press, Colombia's Beatriz Esguerra Art, Netherlands' Chiefs and Spirits and Argentina's AC Contemporary Art, among many others.


This year, Art on Paper will feature a number of incredible public projects, all presented by women in the arts. These public projects will challenge, expand, and engage visitors with their interactive presentation and immersive constructions. These installations will include:

● Yuko Nishikawa’s Memory Tourist - Presented by Cynthia Corbett Gallery
Brooklyn based artist Yuko Nishikawa creates a fantastical environment with her colorful, textural lively forms. Memory Tourist is a two-layered installation with contrasting groups of paper-pulp mobiles anchored by a linear passage. It combines part of Yuko's recent installations with new work, whose wire forms create line drawings in the air and connect colorful and airy repurposed paper “Cookies” which move in response to us when we walk by them and stir the air.

● Leah Hewson’s Kin Connection - Presented by Stoney Road Press
Kin Connection is an installation created by Leah Hewson that highlights the significance of connection and support. Where one entity cannot stand alone, multiple entities together manifest greater potential and outcome. Singular flat plain components interlock together to create abstract structures that intersect active space. From the outside, the arbitrary formation looks in disorder, however on closer inspection the configuration creates suggested pathways to explore.

● Bang Geul Han’s Warp and Weft #05 - Presented by Accola Griefen Fine Art
Warp and Weft, created by interdisciplinary artist Bang Geul Han is an ongoing project involving a series of hand-woven tapestries constructed from paper printouts of legal documents (from state codes concerning abortion, and anti-immigration memoranda to Supreme Court opinions.) The work creates a material manifestation of the inextricable intersections between rights for sexual and reproductive health and questions of race and class. Accompanying the tapestry is a photographic series in which the artist sleeps, meditates, and reads, while wearing the tapestry in various ways, making the intimate yet often invisible relationship between these legal texts with our body and quotidian life visible.

● Shanthi Chandrasekar’s Entropy: Macrostates & Microstates - Presented by LAMINAproject Entropy: Macrostates & Microstates is a site-specific installation entirely out of paper that explores the play of light and shadow, creating shapes that change as the viewer moves. The lace-like effect formed by the overlapping of the hole-punched paper leads to complex images, questioning reality and our perception of it, and visualizing the meaning of entropy and the emergence of complexity from simplicity. Made of hundreds of hand-punched paper circles, portrays randomness within physical systems, Chandrasekar’s delicate suspension of reiterating disks cascade from the ceiling to the floor following a fractal reduction where the smaller parts mirror the larger ones.

● Angiola Churchill’s Labyrinth - Presented by Wook+Lattuada
Professor emeritus of NYU and former Head of the Department of Art, Angiola Churchill - often associated with monumental paper installations - will showcase a piece fashioned from shapes made from paper, glue and scissors. Churchill explains: “Building paper walls around paper gardens has always been of Interest. It is only recently that the walls themselves have become significant. Through playful rummaging, ideas and physical forms align. I envision a structure in which people can enter - a labyrinth comes to mind.”

● An Exhibition of Works by Lucha Rodríguez - Presented by Paradigm Gallery
Philadelphia’s Paradigm Gallery is presenting Sense and Vision, a solo exhibition of works on paper by Atlanta-based Venezuelan-Panamanian artist Lucha Rodríguez. Sense and Vision features four distinct collections of the artist’s “knife drawings”, created with her inventive bas-relief technique on watercolored paper. Abstract forms arise from the optical play of light and shadow over the hand-cut surface of the paper, stimulating the senses, and inviting a synesthetic experience Rodríguez describes as “touching with your eyes”.
