Don’t miss our exhibition Deep Cuts: Contemporary Paper Cutting in its final month. Visit through May 21 to discover contemporary artists who reconsider, redefine, and even subvert the centuries-old practice of paper cutting. In the tradition of the craft, the art featured in the exhibition is impressive and intricate, but its subject matter is updated for the 21st century.

Also explore Soo Sunny Park: BioLath, open now through August 6. New Hampshire artist Soo Sunny Park has created a new, site-specific work that transforms the Currier’s windowed Putnam Gallery into an immersive sculptural environment that explores the effect of light on visual perception. Luminous sculptural forms fill the gallery space—suspended from the ceiling and placed on the floor—capturing and reflecting the light filling the gallery. Read more →
