On view September 28 - December 14, 2014 / Opening reception: Saturday, September 27
Since 1965, the Weatherspoon Art Museum's Art on Paper exhibition has charted a history of contemporary art through outstanding works on paper. For Art on Paper 2014, curator of exhibitions Xandra Eden invited fewer artists than in the past to provide audiences the opportunity to have a more in-depth understanding of each artist’s work. The exhibition includes thirty-four emerging and established artists who have created unique works using paper as their primary medium. Through the ongoing commitment of xpedx (formerly the Dillard Paper Company) and The Dillard Fund, the Weatherspoon has been able to acquire works from each Art on Paper exhibition for the Dillard Collection, which today numbers nearly 600 works. Acquisitions have included work by some of art’s seminal practitioners, such as Eva Hesse, Frank Stella, and Louise Bourgeois.
