Everything but the Paper Cut: Eye-popping Ways Artists Use Paper In the year since the Museum of Art and Design reopened in its new digs on Columbus Circle, they've been delivering consistently compelling shows--from punk-rock lace to radical knitting experiments. The newest, "Slash: Paper Under the Knife", opened last weekend and runs through April 4, 2010. The focus is paper--and the way contemporary artists have used paper itself as a medium, whether by cutting, tearing, burning, or shredding. In all, the show features 50 artists and a dozen installations made just for the show, including Andreas Kocks's Paperwork #701G (in the Beginning), seen above.

The artwork of Joshua Petker Joshua Petker was born in Los Angeles, CA in 1979 and received a BA in Western History from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. While pursuing a degree in History he maintained a growing interest in the arts that developed out of a fascination with graffiti which Petker started creating at the age of 15. After studying abroad in 2001 at the Lorenzo de'Medici Institute of Florence, Joshua decided to pursue a career as a fine artist upon completion of his studies back in the U.S.A. Van Gogh, Neal Cassady, Cy Twombly, Mark Rothko, J.M.W. Petker's paintings have been showcased internationally and are included in a number of private collections throughout the world.
