Pure Pulp: Paper as Medium
Bridget Donlon, curator of “Pure Pulp: Contemporary Artists Working in Paper at Dieu Donné,” currently on view at the Wellin Museum, led a curatorial tour of the exhibit on March 8. Donlon is program manager at Dieu Donné, a nonprofit organization based in New York City where the emphasis is on works in paper, meaning that paper is not a substrate but rather is the medium itself.
This exhibition brings together artwork created in the Dieu Donné studio by 20 artists who have participated in the organization’s prestigious residency programs. The artworks range from intimate two-dimensional studies to large sculptural works, all made from a form of paper pulp.
