PARTY CRASHERS: Comic Culture Invades the Art World

PARTY CRASHERS: Comic Culture Invades the Art WorldArlington Arts Center
November 19 - January 16

Opening Reception Fri. Nov. 19, 7 - 9 pm
Party Crashers at Artisphere:  December 11, 2010 - February 13, 2011

Party Crashers mashes up comic art and contemporary gallery culture and features artists who pass back and forth between the two worlds. The two sister exhibitions, curated by Jeffrey Cudlin, Arlington Arts Center's  Director of Exhibitions, and Cynthia Connolly, Artisphere's Curator and Director of Visual Arts, feature different types of work:  Connolly's show presents fine artists who mimic the appearance of comic art;  Cudlin's show at the AAC contains  Alternative comic artists who also show their original pages and drawings in art galleries, Fine artists and comic artists working side by side on a national curated project, and Fine and comic artists creating avant-garde, purely abstract sequential art without words or recognizable imagery.
