NYC – Drawing Blood Launch Party


Molly Crabapple appears in conversation with Matt Taibbi at The PowerHouse Arena on Monday, November 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM for the launch of DRAWING BLOOD!

“Occupy’s greatest artist” (Rolling Stone) presents illustrations that chronicle the first fifteen years of our fractious twenty-first century with a new form of witness journalism.

Drawing Blood will change the way you think about art, sex, politics and survival in our times. An acclaimed artist and journalist whose work has appeared in The New York Times, Vanity Fair, and The Paris Review, and in her regular column in Vice (among many other venues), Crabapple has swiftly become one of the most provocative—and most-watched—voices at work today. Now, in a book that weaves together fresh, deeply moving language and dazzling, irreverent illustrations, this singular artist traces how the power of art, which gripped her from childhood, has given her a vehicle for understanding—perhaps even for changing—the world. “Art is hope against cynicism, creation against entropy,” she writes. “To make art is an act of both love and defiance.”
