The Cooper Union, 41 Cooper Square, New York, NY 10003

Free and public

Surface to Structure: Folded Forms is an exhibition of origami artwork that brings together the work of 88 artists spanning five continents.  The 134 works in the show encapsulate a broad spectrum of origami’s possibilities, both artistic and scientific, and push the perceptions of this art form beyond its traditional boundaries.

Surface to Structure marks the 55th anniversary of the very first origami exhibition held in the United States, which was also housed within The Cooper Union. The historic works of that seminal exhibition served as a foundation for the contemporary origami of today, which has progressed into a far greater range and complexity of styles, techniques, and genres.

COLLECTIONS ON VIEW
Historical | Representational | Modular | Tessellations | Pleats and Corrugations
Mathematical | Scientific| Fashion | Paper and Metal
The Historical collection will feature works by artists who participated in the 1959 exhibition.
