From the time paper was invented, people have realized that they can cut it to create intricate images and patterns. This new exhibition will celebrate the Danish traditional craft of papirklip. Featuring many contemporary artists, Papirklip places the art of papercutting in a global and historical context while highlighting the Danish styles that have been passed through generations.

This exhibition is sponsored by the descendants of Nadjeschda and Niels Overgaard, who inspired generations of the Overgaard family to celebrate their Danish heritage.
