  • About PAPER
    PAPER is an artist-led, commercial gallery based in Manchester and represents a range of emerging and mid-career artists whose practice is based around the medium of paper. This ranges from drawing, painting, and printmaking to artist's books, video, and performance. The gallery opened in August 2012 and has a regular programme of exhibitions, presenting the work of gallery artists as well as providing a platform for outside curatorial projects. In 2013 PAPER instigated an Artist-in-Residence programme, Exploring PAPER, and in 2014 a mentoring scheme for artists based in the North-West of England, funded by Arts Council England.
    Co-directed by artists Andrea Cotton, David Hancock, Simon Woolham, and Rachel Wrigley; PAPER has participated in three editions of The Manchester Contemporary (UK), as well as Trajector Art Fair (Brussels), Sluice Art Fair (London), Supermarket (Stockholm), Project Space Collective at the Affordable Art Fair 2014 (Battersea), Exchange Rates (New York) and Art Projects at London Art Fair 2015 (UK). PAPER was one of the commissioned projects in the Barnaby Festival (UK). 

    PAPER was founded in 2012 by Andrea Cotton, David Hancock, Nicola Smith & Ian Smith.
