MA – WORDLESS!

ica

Art Spiegelman and Phillip Johnston appear at the ICA to perform WORDLESS! on Sunday, October 26th at 3:00 PM and 8:00 PM!

Press Release:

Art Spiegelman radically changed the public perception of comics with his Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece MAUS, earning the designation “father of the graphic novel.” In WORDLESS!—a genre-bending performance he calls a “hybrid slide talk, standup routine, academic lecture, and full-scale concert by Philip Johnston”—he takes viewers on a punchy personal tour of wordless novels by early-20th-century masters Frans Masereel, Lynd Ward, and Milt Gross. Accompanied by Johnston’s score of “rollicking, klezmer-inflected, vaudeville jazz” (Paris Review), WORDLESS! also features “Shaping Thought,” a new work Spiegelman drew specifically for the project.
