Surface to Structure: Folded Forms
Jun 19, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 10:00 pm
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 19, 7–10PM
Until July 3, 2014 | 11AM–10PM
Surface to Structure: Folded Forms is an exhibition of origami artwork that brings together the work of 88 artists spanning five continents. The 134 works in the show encapsulate a broad spectrum of origami’s possibilities, both artistic and scientific, and push the perceptions of this art form beyond its traditional boundaries.
Surface to Structure marks the 55th anniversary of the very first origami exhibition held in the United States, which was also housed within The Cooper Union. The historic works of that seminal exhibition served as a foundation for the contemporary origami of today, which has progressed into a far greater range and complexity of styles, techniques, and genres.
The works on display range from pure origami to origami-inspired fashion, science, and metal castings.
