Interactive Exhibition & Paper Art Workshop

Drew Cameron, Combat Paper

Explore the creative art of papermaking with Drew Cameron, who specially created the paper art works that appear on stage in My Lai. This immersive, hands-on papermaking session promises to reflect Drew’s innovative practice and process of papermaking printing.  He will also present the meaning behind his imagery and illustrate how those concepts are reflected in today’s world. As he puts it: “This transformative workshop seeks to provide a setting for people to connect with one another. To investigate our various experiences, responsibilities and the collected effects of war and militarism in our communities is an imperative inquiry of our time.”

Drew Cameron is an American paper artist and war veteran. After returning from the Iraq War, he began a practice in the craft of hand papermaking, cutting his own uniform apart and turning it into paper. Sharing this process with the community and fellow veterans is the basis for his work today as Combat Paper. Combat Paper is a collaborative effort. Through four existing paper mills, programming has occurred across the country year-round for the past decade. Their studio work is in 34 public collections and comprised of editions of portfolios, prints, small press publications and unique art pieces. Drew has also worked with Kronos Quartet as a creative consultant for the works “Beyond Zero: 1914-1918” and My Lai. He is based in San Francisco, California. www.combatpaper.org
