The DAI's 2018 special exhibition season begins with Above the Fold: New Expressions in Origami, on view February 17 - May 13, 2018. Above the Fold demonstrates the extraordinary power and potential of contemporary origami. In the hands of nine international artists, what was once considered a children’s craft becomes a sophisticated global art form. Paper is transformed into breathtaking sculpture, large-scale installations and conceptual works that express contemporary social, political, aesthetic, and cultural dialogues. The visionary master folders featured in the exhibition - Erik Demaine and Martin Demaine (Canada/USA), Vincent Floderer (France), Miri Golan (Israel), Paul Jackson (UK/Israel), Dr. Robert J. Lang (USA), Yuko Nishimura (Japan), Richard Sweeney (UK), and Jiangmei Wu (China/USA) - push the boundaries of paper as a medium to create bold, provocative works. You'll never look at a sheet of paper the same way again!
