ON PAPER – Grand Central Exhibition

ON PAPER - Grand Central Exhibition

ON PAPER/ Grand Central at 100 will be featuring the work of four noted contemporary artists working with paper-cut. This is the latest and last offering in a year-long series of exhibitions organized by MTA Arts for Transit and Urban Design mounted to celebrate the historic Centennial of Grand Central Terminal. The four artists included – Laura Cooperman, Rob Ryan, Xin Song, and Thomas Witte – present original artwork inspired by Grand Central. Created by meticulous cutting of black and white paper, each artwork is composed of four panels set in the lightbox windows that flank the dining concourse on the lower level of Grand Central Terminal. Lightboxes are lit from behind, thus highlighting the negative spaces that are removed by cutting the paper, and bringing the imagery into sharp focus. This exhibit is the first time the lightboxes will be used to display original art; they usually showcase photographic work.
