"All Mixed Up" Opens at Krannert Art Museum Oct. 23

This weekend, the Krannert Art Museum is having an opening for the exhibit, "Out of Sequence: Underrepresented Voices in American Comics." The curators, John Jennings and Damian Duffy, describe this show thus:
Out of Sequence continues and expands on investigations such as Masters of American Comics, presented in 2005 by UCLA's Hammer Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, by showcasing areas of sequential art that might otherwise be overlooked or underappreciated. These areas include the work of women and minority artists and small press and webcomics creators. The exhibition will explore alternate histories of American comics and suggest some of the limitless possibilities for the medium in the past, present, and future, from early newspaper strips to the Internet and virtual narratives in simulated three-dimensional space.

Some of the more famous names to appear include: Scott McCloud, Hope Larson, Allison Bechdel, Keith Knight, and many more (really!). To the credit of the curators, they have also included a hearty offering of gallery comics by Andrei Molotiu, Christa Donner, C Hill, and Mark Staff Brandl.

If you're near the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign this weekend, go see the show (from October 24, 2008 through January 4, 2009)! Else, you can order the lavish show catalogue hot off the presses! And if you're broke and far away from Illinois, you can peek at these samples of artworks by innovative comic artists!

Meanwhile, here's a digital layout of my last framed gallery comics installation opening at the Krannert, titled "All Mixed Up" and which can be organized in any order! Enjoy!
