The French and Francophone Studies Department would like to invite you to the French Lecture Series.  Béatrice Coron, will present "Art by a Thousand Cuts."

Béatrice Coron will introduce the many facets of contemporary paper cutting as well as their historical roots. From a panorama of international artists and her own work she will demonstrate the endless possibilities and applications of this simple media. Used for graphic design, story telling or animation you will discover another dimension where there is no limit but your imagination.

Born in France, Béatrice Coron lived in Egypt, Mexico and China before moving to New York. Coron tells stories in illustrations, bookarts, fine arts and public art. She adapts her papercut designs in metal, stone and glass. Coron's  papercuttings were shown at Slash at the Museum of Arts & Design and she spoke about her creative process at TED 2011. You can see her work in major collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Walker Art Center and her public art in subways and airports. To catch all in one place, visit her website at
