FDN Talks Lecture

November 16, 2021 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM


Join us for a zoom lecture with Photographer and Pop-up Paper Engineer Artist, Colette Fu as she discusses her ongoing series of photo-based pop-up books about the ethnic minority groups of China. A self-taught paper engineer, she will discuss her process, how she ended up specializing in such a unique art form, and all that inspired her along the way.

Philadelphia-based artist Colette Fu makes complex three-dimensional compositions that incorporate photography and pop-up paper engineering. Fu’s pop-up books are included in the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Library of Congress, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Getty Research Institute and many private and rare archive collections.  Fu’s numerous awards include a 2020 Joan Mitchell Artist and Sculptor’s Grant, a Meggendorfer Prize for best paper-engineered artist book, and a Fulbright Research Fellowship to China. In 2017, Fu created the world’s largest pop-up book measuring 21×14 feet, where people were invited to enter the book.
