The Torrance Art Museum is proud to present Pulped Fictions, an exhibition featuring artistic practices that explore the material and social qualities of one our most ubiquitous industrial products: cardboard.

Cardboard – that ubiquitous material that surrounds us, linking our desires via the packaging of consumer goods, keeping them safe, quenching our thirst for things – is a cheap and throwaway material rarely paid any attention. But some artists grasp the amazing malleability of it – its strength, its ability to be transformed. These 13 artists find ways to play with this form of wood to invent new narratives. From replicating realistically the objects around us, to exploring structures, to humorously delighting us, they reconstruct the basic elements into fantastical pulped fictions.
