Project Space (613 Allen) On view during events and by appointment only
Paper Girl is a show, an urban action (the distribution of the roles of art), a bicycle workshop and a party. The show originated in Berlin with artist Aisha Ronniger and has been done in numerous other places (www.papergirl-berlin.de). It is a way to surprise and delight the city by giving out free art. With the amazing bike culture and rad art being made here in Austin, it’s about time we put to action this project.
There are no guidelines to who can submit and no required medium, as long as it can be rolled up! The art should be dropped off at Co-Lab the week before the show, June 11-18. We will then have an opening on the 18th where there will be tables set up to create even more works of art. Then on the 25th we will hit the town on our bikes, of course, and distribute the pieces in a newspaper like fashion to anyone and everyone.
So… get to work yall!
