Worlds of Papercut Art

Friday, October 22, 12:30 pm–1:30 pm

This live event will not be recorded.

Chair: Susan Leviton (Levworks)

Cutwork is among the oldest folk arts in the world, with examples found in ancient Chinese and Egyptian burial sites. And papercutting is a most egalitarian craft! While tools, substrates, functions, colors, and imagery vary around the world, there are examples of “shared visual vocabularies” which point to trade exchanges and geographic cultural diversity. Join Susan Leviton on a worldwide visual tour of papercut traditions and observe the artist in a live demonstration of Jewish papercut art.
