"Party Crashers" is opening Friday Nov. 19 at Arlington Arts Center in Arlington Va. From the press release:
PARTY CRASHERS mashes up comic art and contemporary gallery culture, and features artists who pass back and forth between the two worlds. This massive two venue show results from a crosstown collaboration between AAC Director of Exhibitions Jeffry Cudlin and Artisphere Gallery Director Cynthia Connolly. The show’s two independent halves feature different types of work: Connolly’s show presents fine artists who mimic the appearance of comic art; Cudlin’s show at AAC contains: alternative comic artists who also show their original pages and drawings in art galleries; fine and comic artists working side-by-side on a national curated project (Creative Time Comics); and fine and comic artists creating avante-garde, purely abstract sequential art without words or recognizeable imagery.See work by Jim Rugg, Gabrielle Bell, Deb Sokolow, Derik Badman, Robert Pruitt, Victor Kerlow, Blaise Larmee, Warren Craghead III, Jamar Nicholas , Anton Kannemeyer, Jeffrey Brown, Dash Shaw , Rosaire Appel, Andrei Molotiu, Rina Ayuyang, Joshua Cotter and Olav Westphale.
I also made a tiny lil' origami DIY book for the show - it's available for free at http://www.craghead.com/books/partycrashers.html
