The 2010 Art on Paper biennial exhibition remains on view through Feb. 6. Xandra Eden, the Weatherspoon’s Curator of Exhibitions, invited seventy-five artists of regional and international significance to present unique works made on, or of, paper. “With this year’s exhibition, the Weatherspoon continues to expand its international scope,” comments Eden, “Art on Paper 2010 includes artists from across the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, including new and recent work by Mequitta Ahuja, Diana Al-Hadid, Ky Anderson, Tom Burr, Dawn Clements, Gabriel de la Mora, Katie Holten, Eun Hyung Kim, William Powhida, Charlie Roberts, Dirk Stewen, Frank Selby, and many others.”
Since 1965, the Weatherspoon’s Art on Paper exhibition has charted a history of art through the rubric of one-of-a-kind works on paper. Now in its forty-first year, the steadfast commitment of xpdex (formerly the Dillard Paper Company) has allowed the Weatherspoon to acquire works from each and every Art on Paper exhibition, resulting in the formation and growth of the Dillard Collection of Art on Paper, which today numbers close to 550 objects.
