Art on Paper March 8-11 2018

Art on Paper returns to Pier 36 this March 8-11 for the fair's anticipated fourth edition. Featuring eighty-five top galleries presenting paper-based art, Art on Paper will include a program of special projectsthat highlight the diversity of paper, pushing the boundaries of the medium out into the fair's public spaces.
Art on Paper
At the Art on Paper entrance, Walter Maciel Gallery will present Understory by Timothy Paul Myers and Andrew Barnes. The life-size installation replicates a suburban basement, complete with the furnishings and objects typically found therein. The laundry machine, old bed frame, ping pong paddle and coffee maker all have their place amongst the piles and crowded shelves that make up this catch-all space. Myers and Barnes transform this familiar room by meticulously wrapping these every day objects in a layer of flesh colored, paper-based felt. The uniformity created from this tonal wash further obscures the boundaries and individuality of these every day items for the viewer. 
The Lower Eastside Girls Club
Julio Valdez Project Space will present Michele Brody's Reflections in Tea, an interactive, long-term project inspired by the worldwide tradition of drinking and sharing tea. Initially envisioned as a mobile tea house, Reflections in Tea emphasizes the invitation to enter and share tea within a semi-private space. Each ceremony focuses on the sharing of stories within the context and history of one’s community, after which participants are asked to inscribe their impressions onto the stained paper filters used to brew the tea. These tea notes are then hung together with past tea stories, culminating in the creation of an ever-growing installation of fluttering paper quilts.
The Lower Eastside Girls Club
Garvey | Simon will present several life-size sculptures by Will Kurtz. Created out of newspaper with an internal structure of wood and wire, Kurtz's subjects are real, everyday people who are often undistinguished and living on the margins of society. They have a familiarity of someone you might know or have passed on the street. Kurtz captures their resilience and vulnerability to embody a true empathy for the hardships we all share.
The Lower Eastside Girls Club
Forum Gallery will present two large-scale charcoal on paper works by William Beckman, The Bull Series #10 and Bathers. Throughout his career, Beckman has used media in unconventional ways. His drawings were honored with a retrospective exhibition organized by the Columbus Museum, GA, and then traveled to the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock. His work is included in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, the Columbus Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Joseph H. Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Frye Art Museum, among others.
The Lower Eastside Girls Club
Heather Gaudio Fine Art will present Jae Ko's FLOW from the Force of Nature Series. Dating back to 1996, the Force of Nature series looks to kraft paper rolls and other industrial paper commonly used for wrapping and packing. By shifting from the medium’s flatness to its spatial configuration, Ko amasses and transforms large quantities of paper into installations either by bundling them tightly, stacking them up, or pilling them against the wall, which in turn produces folds, pleats, and gaps. With such an interplay of line and volume, movement and solidity, the Force of Nature series evokes forces of nature: arctic glacier, rolling hills, ocean tides, or blowing wind.
