On Paper

September 10–November 9, 2002

Curated by Liz Wylie

University of Toronto Art Centre

This exhibition is comprised of recent gifts to the University of Toronto Art Collection that are all works on paper. Thirteen artists will have a total of ninety-six works included, which will range from a 19th-century ink drawing by G.F. Watts, to a grid-format wall work made up of 168 individual sheets by Toronto artist Ed Pien. Some of the artists have tried to extend the notion of paper as a support, either literally, in the case of a collaborative piece by John Armstrong and Denyse Thomasos, entitled Busy, Busy, that cascades from the wall onto the floor, or in a more metaphorical sense, in the hands, for example of senior Canadian artist Frank Nulf.
