Event Details

Innovative artists can create remarkable objects from simple materials, such as paper, construction supplies, and light. These elements combine in experimental fashion in two new contemporary exhibitions opening at the Currier Museum of Art on Saturday, February 25, 2017.

Deep Cuts: Contemporary Paper Cutting examines a re-energized art form dating back to ancient China. The exhibition showcases inventive objects made from cut and manipulated paper, ranging from large-scale installations to detailed diminutive works. The objects explore a wide range of thought-provoking subjects.

Soo Sunny Park, a New Hampshire-based artist, has created a new work of art, BioLath, which immerses visitors in a dynamic, light-filled space. Occupying an entire gallery of the Currier Museum, the artist works with construction materials to filter and refract natural and artificial light.

“This spring, the Currier Museum will focus on contemporary art,” said Alan Chong, director of the museum. “Both exhibitions feature objects which have been pierced, cut, abraded, and manipulated in some way. Ordinary, everyday materials take on new lives and new meaning. Much of the work presented this season has been created or altered specifically for the museum. We invite visitors to experience these exhibitions in their own ways. For example, they will be able to craft their own cut-paper objects in a community project.”

An extensive series of public programs deepen understanding of the two exhibitions. A special event on the evening of February 24 at 7 pm will celebrate the exhibitions; tickets are $20 and include a free drink.
