The First Cut is a major exhibition featuring new and recent works by over 30 international contemporary artists who work with paper in revolutionary ways.
Featuring established and emerging artists from America, Australia, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Romania, Sweden and the UK, it explores how the humble scrap of paper is transformed into extraordinary creations, through cutting, folding and sculpting.
The title alludes to the beginning of the creative process but also suggests a violent and sinister action.
Published to accompany the exhibition The First Cut at Manchester City Galleries (Manchester Art Gallery and The Gallery of Costume), 4 October 2012 – 27 January 2013.
