The First Cut exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery. 

The exhibition is small but absolutely incredible - ranging from large scale installations to extremely tiny, delicate pieces. There are only 3 days left of the exhibition (it runs until January 27th) so go as soon as you can! 

Here is an excerpt from the Gallery’s website: 

31 international artists who cut, sculpt and manipulate paper, transform this humble material into fantastical works of art for our stunning new exhibition.

Wonder at giant sculptures inspired by far away galaxies that spiral from the wall, explore a walk-through forest of paper trees and marvel at miniature worlds that explode from vintage staple boxes or emerge from the page of a book. 

Flocks of birds and butterflies cut from maps appear alongside artworks that feature dark fairytale imagery. Guns and grenades fashioned from paper currency and sinister silhouettes comment on social, political and economic issues.”

Tip: Plan your lunch around your visit, the cafe and restaurant are lovely.
