ON – Making History: The Cartoon Worlds of Seth

Seth and fellow cartoonist Michael DeForge for a discussion about comics, world-building, and capturing the past on Saturday March 4, 2017 at 2:00 PM.

SETH · cartoonist · illustrator · book-maker · designer · model-builder · installation artist

For decades Seth has been making and re-making histories – often uniquely Canadian histories – while cultivating a distinctive graphic style that calls to mind a golden age of cartooning. In comics and illustrations, in published sketchbooks, in gallery installations, on New Yorker covers, Seth gives substance to an imagined past that hovers at the edge of memory.

The historical inventions and interventions of his work draw attention to the representation of the past, and in doing so reveal the amount of the artifice involved in the construction of history. By allowing his readers to explore a vividly rendered, materially rich collection of overlapping cartoon worlds, Seth makes tangible a complicated longing for the past.
