May 29 – August 21, 2016
With this inventive exhibition, the traditional Japanese art of origami—folding paper into three-dimensional figures—is transformed from a childhood pastime into a sophisticated international art form. Nine contemporary artists, working in six different countries and ranging in age from 29 to 71, present a bold and innovative group of folded-paper works that include sculpture, large-scale installation, and conceptual pieces.

Above the Fold is curated by Meher McArthur and toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC.
