Jane South in 'Slash: Paper Under The Knife'

Jane South unveils a major new installation as part of the 'Slash: Paper Under The Knife' exhibition, now on view at New York's Museum of Arts and Design.

The exhibition explores the international phenomenon of cut paper in contemporary art, showcasing the work of artists (including Thomas Demand, Olafur Eliasson, Tom Friedman, Judy Pfaff, and Kara Walker) who reach beyond the traditional role of paper as a neutral surface to consider its potential as a medium for provocative, expressive, and visually striking sculpture, installation, and video animation.

The exhibition opened to the public on October 9th, and Jane, as part of a special opening week preview along with a number of other artists, has been working in situ on her installation in the museum's 4th and 5th floor galleries.

You can catch Jane putting the finishing touches to her piece through the end of the day today, October 13th, and the exhibition continues through April 4th, 2010.
