Dieu Donné announces the opening of Imperfect Surface, an exhibition of new paper-based works by Zak Kitnick, Andy Mister, Jessica Rankin, Alan Reid, Casey Ruble, and Alyson Shotz, beginning Wednesday, March 5, 2014 and on view through Saturday, April 12, 2014. The exhibition will include newly created two and three-dimensional works by New York City area artists who have varied practices but share an affinity for paper and have not previously worked with Dieu Donné in the residency or publishing programs. There will be an opening reception on Friday, March 7, 2014 from 6 to 8 pm, and the artists will be present.
The exhibiting artists were invited to create new work using paper handmade by Dieu Donné’s papermakers, who carefully considered each artist’s existing artworks and anticipated what varieties of paper might provoke or inspire new directions. The selections range from subtle, off-white heavyweight cotton to metallic pigmented abaca and are unique substitutions for typical media. For these artists, the paper is not only a substrate but also an integral element of the artwork.
