Clowes on Film
Screening in conjunction with the survey of his work in our galleries (as well as an exhibition he’s curated) are these film adaptions of comics by Daniel Clowes. Clowes co-wrote the scripts for both films, which were directed by Terry Zwigoff. No stranger to cartoons and comics himself, Zwigoff is perhaps best known for his 1995 documentary Crumb, on legendary cartoonist R. Crumb, which made dozens of best-film-of-the-year lists.
Modern Cartoonist: The Art of Daniel Clowes and Eye of the Cartoonist: Daniel Clowes’s Selections from Comics History are on view May 17–August 3, 2014.
