Recapping it all a tiny nutshell
Like the title says; Artist First is created (read all about that on the site) to make the artist important again (as opposed to the modern-day importancy of curators, trends, status, money etc.) and to show the “expressive power of the individual artwork—and with it, the artist’s autonomous position” (quote via Edo Dijksterhuis at artslant.com)
We, at Mimi Berlin think The Artist First, Paper Only is an exhibition which is certainly worth your visit!

Jacob Hashimoto uses the traditional kite-making techniques and forms to construct his three dimensional wall works. Existing as neither sculpture nor painting, Hashimoto’s compositions delicately float before the eye, mounted on an intricate network of interlaced nylon thread suspended from the wall by a line of pegs at both top and bottom. Tied to this support are hundreds of swatches of rice paper and bamboo slivers – some collaged or painted with complex designs – dangling in abstracted motifs. Through this unique process Hashimoto’s works convey an ephemeral wonder, entrancing the viewer with their continuously shifting illusion of light, space, motion, and sense of flight.
