Please join the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art – MoCCA for ABSTRACT COMICS: a panel discussion
Saturday, September 12th, 4 p.m. 2009
Admission: $5 | Free for MoCCA Members
Join MoCCA for a discussion about Abstract Comics: what they are, who is making them and why. Abstract Comics explores what is essential to the medium of comics – panel rhythm, page layout, the sequential arrangement of formal elements – and tells us how comics function and where they can go. This talk is held in conjunction with the exhibition Silent Pictures at James Gallery, CUNY, opening on Thursday, September 10th and the new book Abstract Comics, edited by Andrei Molotiu from Fantagraphics Books.
Thursday, September 10
New York, NY, 5 PM – 6 PM
Artists featured in ABSTRACT COMICS, a new anthology published by Fantagraphics, which traces the history of abstract sequential art, will sign copies of the book at the Manhattan location of Jim Hanley’s Universe. On hand will be editor Andrei Molotiu, as well as artists Patrick McDonnell (MUTTS), Richard Hahn, (LUMAKICK), Geoff Grogan (LOOK OUT MONSTERS), HENRIK REHR (TRIBECA SUNSET), Alexey Sokolin and Anders Pearson.
