Above the Fold: New Expressions in Origami at the Japanese American National Museum

With this inventive exhibition, the traditional Japanese art of origami—folding paper into three-dimensional figures—is transformed from a childhood pastime into a sophisticated international art form. Nine contemporary artists, working in six different countries and ranging in age from 29 to 71, present a bold and innovative group of folded-paper works that include sculpture, large-scale installation, and conceptual pieces.


Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday–Sunday: 11 a.m.–5 p.m.

Thursday: 12 p.m.–8 p.m.*

Final visitor admissions are accepted 30 minutes before closing.

Closed Monday, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.
