An installation image containing multiple artworks

Pure Pulp brings together a diverse group of sculptures, books, and two-dimensional works created from 2000 to the present by 20 artists who have participated in the prestigious residency programs at Dieu Donné, a paper making studio in New York City founded in 1976. This exhibition features a selection of works representing a wide range of achievements that defy expectations of paper’s capacity as an artistic medium. At a time when new media technology such as 3-D printing, high-performance cameras, and digital equipment are increasingly pervasive and affordable, Dieu Donné offers a unique return to traditional materials while applying innovative methods, making handmade paper particularly relevant to contemporary artists working today.

Pure Pulp: Contemporary Artists Working in Paper at Dieu Donné was organized by the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College. The exhibition tour was organized by Dieu Donné, New York.
