100 Artsy Paperweights at the Paperweight Show

The Paperweight Show at Fisher Parrish Gallery was an exhibition of original small works by over 100 contemporary artists and designers. The paperweight is a small weighty sculpture to which we have ascribed one very simple function (a somewhat obsolete function today). From clearly ‘designed’ and functional works, to more conceptual explorations of a specific function, The Paperweight Show aimed to engage both established and emerging artists and designers in an important dialogue – pushing your own disciplinary boundaries and allowing for a deeper understanding of the object.
