Now Reading: 100 Artsy Paperweights at the Paperweight Show
Written 8 months ago by
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.
