Virtual Panel Discussion Series

Friday, October 16, 2020

The Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking is pleased to announce a special, virtual series to explore the art and experiences of the artists included in the 7th National Collegiate Haandmade Paper Art Exhibit

“Paper as the medium” is the overall theme for a three-part virtual panel discussion series featuring artists from the 7th National Collegiate Handmade Paper Art Triennial exhibit at the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking. Student artists will discuss their work and experiences in brief presentations, and then a panel discussion moderated by Museum Coordinator Jerushia Graham will follow. All panels are at 8pm EST.

The first panel on Wednesday, October 28, is “Paper as Installation.” Panelists Sanaz Haghani (University of Georgia) and David Klos (Maryland Institute College of Art) will discuss how they use paper to create their installations. These visually-striking pieces grab the viewer’s attention to create conversations about contemporary issues.

“Paper as Surface” on Wednesday, November 11 explores how paper is used in an illustrative way.  What possibilities are revealed when your medium is both the content and the surface? Join the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking virtually as we speak to Michael Whitehead (Louisiana State University), Melanie Mauro (University of the Arts), and Anela Oh (SMFA at Tufts University) about the pulp painting technique as an aesthetic and its potential as a communicative tool.

The series closes with “Paper as Book” on Wednesday, November 18. What makes a book a book? The artists featured in this panel expand our understanding of what a book can be into something else entirely. Join the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking virtually as we delve into the boundless potential of book arts and the various configurations in which paper is transformed into a “book”. Featured panelists are Ben Iluzada (University of the Arts, Philadelphia), Elise Hochhalter (University of Iowa Center for the Book), and Shoko Nakamura (University of Iowa Center for the Book).

Museum coordinator Jerushia Graham says, “We are so excited about this panel series! Hearing these emerging artists discuss their work and how they explore the possibilities available to paper is something we are looking forward to being able to share with others. Being able to participate from anywhere in the country– or world– means we are able to gather a wide representation of those who participated in the exhibit.”  To join this session, visit https://bluejeans.com/718244652
