Artist's Talk: Daniel Clowes and Hillary Chute
Spring Exhibitions at the Wexner Center for the Arts

Daniel Clowes and Hillary Chute

Sat, May 17, 2014 7 PM

Join Daniel Clowes and comics scholar Hillary Chute for a lively conversation about Clowes’s career—which includes such comics and graphic novels as Ghost World (1997), The Death-Ray (2011), and Wilson (2010)—and his role as a curator of Eye of the Cartoonist, on view at the Wexner Center. Chute is a Neubauer Family Assistant Professor in the Department of English at the University of Chicago and author of Graphic Women: Life Narrative and Contemporary Comics (2010) and Outside the Box: Interviews with Contemporary Cartoonists (2014).

Clowes is the subject of Modern Cartoonist, a career-spanning survey, and a curator of Eye of the Cartoonist, an exhibition of his influences, both on view at the Wex May 17–August 3, 2014. Come before the talk and see them for free as part of Art Museum Day, a nationwide initiative of the Association of Art Museum Directors.
