Works on Paper : Art Inside the Wallet

From 4 August 2016 Until 30 November 2016

This exhibition takes a new look at old subject matter. Banknotes have existed for centuries and are often masterpieces of design, with the added ingenuity of security features. Works on Paper: Art Inside the Wallet highlights the artistry of these miniature marvels and the practical challenges of the banks that issue them. It is a chance to enter a world that is usually unappreciated and unseen inside our wallets.
