‘paper on skin 2020’
3 July to 31 July 2020

‘paper on skin’ connects Burnie’s paper-making heritage to a community of international artists who embrace the challenge of designing a wearable garment made from at least 80% paper.

Burnie Arts Council Inc, in partnership with the Burnie City Council, Burnie Regional Art Gallery and the Burnie Arts & Function Centre proudly present the fifth biennial ‘paper on skin’ competition and exhibition.
‘paper on skin’ firmly establishes Burnie as a centre of cultural excellence.
