“In a world of transient communication and fleeting digital memories, paper offers texture and feeling, weight and sensation…”

Ten days celebrating colour and the freedom to play – installations by some of the most exciting creative minds from the worlds of contemporary art, design and architecture – using the specialist coloured paper, Colorplan, from Hull company G . F Smith.

Spaces and places in and around Fruit Market will be transformed by this event, where leading artists and designers have been invited to play with the most fundamental creative material – paper. Also revealed at the launch of Paper City will be – the World’s Favourite Colour.
