Member Preview: Above the Fold: New Expressions in Origami

MFA Members are invited to a special preview of Above the Fold: New Expressions in Origami.

Origami (“paper folding”), has evolved from a Japanese craft and ceremonial tradition into a highly expressive, global art form that even has scientific applications. Today, artists from all over the world are folding paper into increasingly elaborate and provocative sculptural works, while scientists and mathematicians are using origami to help unlock the mysteries of the universe. Above the Fold demonstrates the extraordinary power and potential of contemporary origami. Paper is transformed into breathtaking sculpture, large-scale installations and conceptual works that express contemporary social, political, and aesthetic ideas.
