Join us for the Opening Reception of Comics Unbound, an exhibition curated by Anne Drozd and Jerzy Drozd, which explores how cartoonists use shape, size, line, color, and context to activate the readers’ imaginations and invite them into the partnership of comics narrative. Pages are removed from their intended context, that of the graphic novel or comic book, and re-contextualized with the materials that went into making the final pages. Sketches, notes, scripts, and tools are displayed alongside the final artwork. This new context reveals what is usually an invisible narrative in comics–the journey from artist’s vision to clear transmission of meaning.
