First Cut Preview 4 October 6 - 8.45pm
Join us for the preview of The First Cut exhibition, which features artwork by 31 international contemporary artists who radically rethink the possibilities of working with paper. Many of the artists will be there to help us celebrate the opening of this extraordinary exhibition. Experience works including a walk-through paper forest and large scale installations that tumble down gallery walls to intricate, miniature worlds that explode from vintage stapleboxes. By transforming books, magazines and maps, using silhouettes, creating dresses, sculptures and installations, the artists demonstrate the huge potential and power of such a humble material.
Speeches from 6:30 pm
Limited edition works by artists in the exhibition will be for sale alongside a range of books and paper inspired merchandise.
Meet up with friends, drop in for food and drink, browse the galleries and shop at your leisure. Our cafe offers a special evening menu of moreish snacks and generous sharing platters with a special selection of wines and beers chosen to complement them.
