Paperwork: Innovative Uses of Paper in Works from Telfair’s Collection

Inspired by Sarah Frost’s powerful installation Arsenal, Telfair is pleased to assemble this small focus exhibition consisting of works that utilize paper in unusual or unexpected ways. From Elizabeth Murray’s three-dimensional Study for Capree to Aldwyth’s painstakingly assembled collage Where Were You When the Moon Was Full?, the works in this exhibition demonstrate that paper can serve as far more than a support for other artistic media.
