Stories in Paper Exhibition

Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan

Join our opening night lecture and workshop event on October 25!

Explore brilliant narratives through origami, the Japanese art of folding! A celebration of the imagination, origami is a transformative art, turning a simple sheet of paper into complex narratives. Each fold contains the history of its creator and the emotional journey of exploring 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional space.

Come experience the miniature universes of origami and discover the stories they have to tell, from the natural to the mathematical. Featuring works from Giang Dinh, Sy Chen, Marc Thompson, Kathy Stevick, Alex Chen, Margaret Wong, Belle Fernandez, Goran Konjevod, Faye E. Goldman, and Doug Caine.

This exhibition is in celebration of World Origami Days, celebrated every year between October 24, the birthday of the founder of OrigamiUSA, and November 11, Japan’s Origami Day. You can learn more about World Origami Days on OrigamiUSA's website.

This exhibition is made possible with support from OrigamiUSA and Ms. Patsy Wang-Iverson.
