Paper Girl is an art project that originated in Berlin, and is being held in Manchester this autumn, for the UKs first outing. Artists donate work to be rolled up and distributed in the style of American paper-boys, by bike. Each piece of the publication holds a random choice of 4 images by the represented artists and is printed on various papers e.g. news print. This means that no two rolls are the same, and you could be receiving original art, photographs, prints or text.
The organisers say that, "Giving the work out by bike means that there is no time for any stereotypes when choosing recipients of the pieces. You have to react fast and spontaneously. Chance plays its part."
