This week, NMWA Curator of Book Arts Krystyna Wasserman discusses several works in the special exhibition Wanderer/Wonderer: Pop-Ups by Colette Fu.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
Colette Fu is renowned for her immense, sculptural pop-up books. This focus exhibition presents works from her series “Haunted Philadelphia,” inspired by eerie historical sites in her hometown, and “We are Tiger Dragon People,” her visual explorations of China’s Yunnan Province. Fu’s works combine landscapes, fairy tales, and folklore to form a pop-up fantasy world.
