If you’re interested in fantastical paper art check out this new, two-venue show for some delightful abstractions and creations made from paper. Entitled The First Cut, over 30 international artists have worked with paper to produce exhibitions ranging from birds and butterflies to guns and grenades, on display at MAG. The Gallery of Costume plays host to paper dresses and shoes, plus dresses fashioned out of maps and money – all set in the gallery’s Georgian surroundings.
