NYC – The Art of the Avengers & Other Marvel Heroes Exhibition

Legendary Thor artist and writer Walt Simonson will be on hand at the Society of Illustrators for the exhibition opening on Thursday, July 12th at 7:30 PM!

Press Release:

The Museum of Illustration at the Society of Illustrators is pleased to present an exhibition of Marvel Comics original artwork by Jack Kirby, Walt Simonson, Jim Steranko, John Buscema, John Romita, Steve Ditko, Dick Ayers, Neal Adams, and other comic book artists, on display from July 5th through October 20, 2018.

This exhibition of work from the Marvel Universe will feature original art showcasing characters seen in Marvel’s latest blockbuster hit, Avengers: Infinity War.

The exhibition includes vintage, original comic artwork from all years of Marvel Comics history. The selections illustrate how Marvel’s innovative creative teams initially led by legendary creators Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, kept the Marvel Universe evolving with the times. From the early 1960s where the character’s distinct personalities were formulated, to the 1970s and 1980s with Marvel hitting its creative stride, to the modern era, where super heroes have gained mainstream recognition.

Significant pieces of artwork will be exhibited publicly for the first time, including original comic book pages featuring core members of Marvel’s Avengers team. Also featured is a stunning selection of the art of Spider-Man (who tried to join the Avengers several times), The Hulk, The Black Panther, Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man.

The exhibition will be assembled from the collection of Marvel art collector Mike Burkey, and other notable collectors, and is organized and curated by comic art collector and historian Rob Pistella (curator of the blockbuster The Art of Spider-Man exhibition held at the Society in 2017).

At over 200 pieces of original art, this exhibition will be the largest selection of vintage and modern original Marvel art that has ever been displayed in the world.

An opening reception to the public will be held on Thursday July 12th at 7:30 PM.

CA – Not That Bad Signing

Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling & deeply beloved author of Bad Feminist and Hunger, appears at The Grove on Monday, June 25 at 7 PM to discuss & sign “Not That Bad”. This anthology of first-person essays tackles rape, assault, & harassment head-on and what it means to live in a world where women have to measure the harassment, violence, & aggression they face, and where they are “routinely second-guessed, blown off, discredited, denigrated, besmirched, belittled, patronized, mocked, shamed, gaslit, insulted, bullied” for speaking out. Contributions include essays from established and up-and-coming writers, performers, and critics, including actors Ally Sheedy and Gabrielle Union and writers Amy Jo Burns, Lyz Lenz, and Claire Schwartz. Covering a wide range of topics and experiences, from an exploration of the rape epidemic embedded in the refugee crisis to first-person accounts of child molestation, this collection is often deeply personal and is always unflinchingly honest.

MD – The Necessity of Tomorrow

The Baltimore Museum of Art presents their new series, The Necessity of Tomorrow(s), with Ta-Nehisi Coates, National Book Award winner, national correspondent for The Atlantic, and author of Marvel Comic’s Black Panther series, bringing him back to his hometown of Baltimore for a conversation with BMA Director Christopher Bedford on Thursday, May 17th at 6:00 PM. They’ll explore how the resurgence of Black Panther in film and in print, which envisions alternative futures and new possibilities unapologetically rooted in black culture and technology, relates to the current cultural moment.

Stay for:

*Live music with Ancestral Duo & DJ Trillnatured w/ MC Kotic Couture curated by The Crown
*Cash bars curated by The Crown
*Light fare by Blacksauce Kitchen
*A comic book reading room with Atomic Books
*Voter registration with Black Girls Vote
*New words for a new future activity with Professor Christine Mallinson, UMBC

Doors open at 6pm, and the conversation begins at 7pm. First come, first seated.

Seating in the BMA’s Meyerhoff Auditorium is limited. Overflow viewing via live stream will be available throughout the museum. This event is free and open to the public.

The Necessity of Tomorrow(s)—a three part series of artist conversations —borrows its title from the Samuel Delany essay of the same name, which argues for the role of creative speculation in making a more just future. By bringing visionary artists and thinkers to Baltimore to consider key ideas about race and visual culture, the BMA provides a platform for participants and audiences to think differently about questions which affect us all.
