JANUARY 29TH – April 17th
Origin-Destination studies are used to define patterns of traffic in an area of interest. While these studies specifically look at travel, we are asking you to consider the travel and growth of paper art and IAPMA around the world.
IAPMA was founded in 1986 in Düren, Germany, at a meeting held in conjunction with the opening of The First International Paper Art Biennale in Europe at the Leopold Hoesch Museum. The first meeting of the association was housed by the paper Mill Museum of Capellades, Barcelona ( Spain).
The founding members originated from numerous countries around the globe who were elected to create an international association focusing on paper and all its aspects.
In the 35 years since its founding, IAPMA members have ventured to destinations far and wide to share their love of paper art and cultural exchange, creating a worldwide network of artists and craftspersons across more than 40 countries.
What is it that ties our past to our future? What is the path we take or make to get there?
How do we move around the obstacles in our path? Networks, maps, transit systems,
systems of communication, interconnectedness, adventure, nostalgia, memory, intuition, resourcefulness and creative problem-solving. Perhaps it is not so much the destination as the journey.
We have encouraged IAPMA members to explore this theme through paper artwork and share it with us.
