PAPER CONTEMPORARY

https://sydneycontemporary.com.au/galleries/?type=Paper&letter=

PAPER CONTEMPORARY RETURNS FOR THE FOURTH TIME AS AN IMPORTANT SEGMENT OF SYDNEY CONTEMPORARY, WITH A STRONG REPRESENTATION OF GALLERIES, PRINTMAKING WORKSHOPS AND ART PUBLISHERS FROM AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND AND THE UK, FEATURING TOP MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY WORKS OF ART ON PAPER.

In a globally influenced, culturally diverse world, contemporary artists working in the printmaking or any other paper based medium today, explore concepts, questions, and practices that examine the past, describe the present, and imagine the future. In light of such diversity, there is no simple or singular way to define the importance of works of art on paper in a contemporary context. It amplifies though, that art on paper is an exciting and critical part of our visual arts culture, and arguably can be seen as the most fundamental, spontaneous, collectible and personally satisfying of all art forms.

While there still is much ignorance about these mediums and undervaluation, there is a growing emergence of the recognition of the importance of art on paper.  Limited edition prints, artists book, zines etc., all are original artworks. A comprehensive and entertaining program of talks, demonstrations, workshops and tours, provides an up close, personal and professional insight into artists practice, the process and the intense work and skills. Specialist galleries, print studios and art publishers, with a wealth of expertise and knowledge at hand, can inform the public, collectors, both just starting out, and those building on established collections about exciting new projects from today’s leading and emerging artists from around Australia and abroad.

We make sure to keep works on paper in the forefront, stimulate debate and create a wonderful ambiance for the general public to enjoy and appreciate Paper Contemporary. Paper Contemporary presents such a good opportunity and platform to show the best of the best, to better educate future collectors on the joy of buying and living with works of art on paper.
