Paper Is People: Decolonizing Global Paper Cultures, co-curated by Tia Blassingame and Stephanie Sauer, offers a new definition of paper­ within a global and decolonial framework. Featuring works by local, national, and international artists, this exhibition explores the vital role substrates play in human communities and how meaning is made from what we might call paper and papermaking.

Light refreshments will be served; opening remarks at 7 pm.

This exhibition originated at and has been organized by Minnesota for Book Arts. It is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Center for Craft, and the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
