Scion Presents: Papershapers featuring Shin Tanaka


Papershapers, curated by Giant Robot opens on April 11 at Scion’s 4,500 square foot Installation L.A. Gallery in Culver City. Papershapers is a group show featuring ten artists who work with paper-not "on paper." The exhibition will feature works that are cut, torn, folded, and sewn into unique creations. Shin Tanaka will be making a rare U.S. appearance at the opening and will be on hand to show original pieces and fold paper with attendees!

Tanaka is an interactive paper artist from Japan who has attracted fans worldwide by creating downloadable templates that enable people to make cool, customizable figures at home. Scion recently placed inserts in Giant Robot magazine, issues 56-58, that allowed readers to directly experience Tanaka’s art. The three installments of the 4-in-1 Robot Paper Toy Project not only provided the bases for colorful, 3-D robot figures but, when combined, provide the parts to make a super robot. To commemorate the completion of the 4-in-1 Robot Paper Toy Project, Scion and Giant Robot launched a contest challenging readers to design their own paper figures using Tanaka’s downloadable template. The winner will be flown to Los Angeles for this show where their winning piece will be distributed. Details of the contest can be found at: www.giantrobotshin.com.

A variety of paper artists from around the world will also participate in the exhibition - Ana Serrano, Annie Vought, Brian Dettmet, Hunter Stabler, Peter Callesen, Polly Verity, Richard Sweeney, Mu Pan and Ryohei Tanaka.
