'Used Paper' Launch — London, UK

When arranging the shipment of works for Robert Ryman’s 1968 exhibition at Konrad Fischer Galerie, Düsseldorf, the gallerist listed the artworks simply as ‘paper’ to minimise any potential import costs. When informed that the import duty on handmade paper was also high, Fischer re-categorised the works as ‘used paper’.

Used Paper is a new contemporary art publisher commissioning multiple and editioned works across a broad range of media, accompanied by commissioned essays. Artists are invited to approach the conception and production of a portfolio as if making a solo or group exhibition, employing images, objects, sound and film/digital works all within the context of a box file.
