The act of folding paper can be as simplistic as making a kid an airplane. For the elaborate, jaw-dropping, “How was that done?,” head on over to Origami Weekend. To get up close and personal with the art, KMAC’s origami exhibition features more than 15 works by international artists. It continues through April 4.

There are two ways to learn about origami: The documentary “Between the Folds” will be shown on Friday, March 25, at 7 p.m. There is no separation between art and science in this film, as it tells the story of 10 scientists who became “paper folders.” If you want to give origami a try, there’s a workshop taught by James Peake (his work is in the exhibition) on Saturday, March 26, from 1-3 p.m. ($15 members, $20 non-members). —Jo Anne Triplett
