Pallas Contemporary Projects is proud to present for its final exhibition of 2009 the group exhibition Paper Work, which draws together an exemplary assembly of peers and friends, artists whose work we love. Paper Work explores the primacy of paper as a fundamental medium, a celebration at the core of the transformative essence of artistic production, and of the possibilities inherent in the simplest medium, intrinsic as it is to the facilitation of expansive contemporary artistic concepts.

We are very pleased to present many of the incredible artists who have shown with us over the past number of years, alongside a number of artists whose work we highly admire and whose output have been clearly associated with works on paper. The works range from small, framed works to expanded uses of paper, mapping out a beautiful and bizarre topography of possibilities.

Pallas Contemporary Projects focuses on a discursive exchange between Irish and international artists with a strong conceptual approach working in different media. PCP is also a proving ground for young and emerging artists, offering a space to experiment and take risks with their practice. Commission on sales at Paper Work will go towards the gallery’s 2010 exhibition programme.

Pallas Contemporary Projects would like to acknowledge the support of the Arts Council and Dublin City Council. Paper Work is curated by Gavin Murphy & Mark Cullen, assisted by Fiona Chambers.
