NYC – Making The Abyss
Join MoCCA for a conversation between Dash Shaw and artist Keith Mayerson about their art, working methods and more.
Tuesday, May 25, 7 PM
Admission: $5 | Free for MoCCA Members
Dash Shaw is the focus of MoCCA’s current exhibition Making The Abyss and is the creator of BodyWorld, Bottomless Belly Button and The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century. Shaw’s recent works connect an interest with the human body, informed by figure drawing, with humorous character-driven narratives.
Keith Mayerson is a painter who has exhibited widely throughout the world. He is the Cartooning Coordinator at the School of Visual Arts and teaches fine art at New York University. Mayerson is curator of the current MoCCA exhibition NeoIntegrity: Comics Edition and is on MoCCA’s Board of Trustees. He is the co-creator with Dennis Cooper of the graphic novel Horror Hospital Unplugged to be pulished next year by Harper-Perennial.
MoCCA Thursdays are made possible in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council. Additional support comes from and the members of MoCCA.
