A single sheet of paper has endless creative possibilities, but like all things it falls apart. It can be transformed into a calendar, a book, a puppet, a box, a dollar bill, a drawing—there is unimaginable potential within each sheet of paper. However, when we reuse the same piece of paper over and over again, it begins to break down and sometimes the message can become hard to read. How many different things can you create with a single piece of paper before it is destroyed? Join New Museum educators as we explore one of the most basic and versatile materials, and discover the limits of what can be created with a single sheet of paper.
This New Museum First Saturday was developed in collaboration with Nicolás Paris as part of his Museum as Hub residency.
