A gallery talk, presented in conjunction with the Transit Museum’s exhibition, Underground Heroes: New York Transit in the Comics. Joining curator Jodi Shapiro, Karen Green of Columbia University Libraries and comic artists Stan Mack and Peter Kuper will discuss the ways that satirical cartoons, comic strips, and comic books have been used to bring the stories – and histories – of New York to life.
Peter Kuper and Summer Pierre will discuss their new graphic novels with moderator Chris Duffy.
Join us in the Rare Book Room as Peter discusses his new graphic novel with Jeremy Dauber, Columbia University's Atran Professor of Yiddish Language, Literature, and Culture and author of the "groundbreaking" study Jewish Comedy: A Serious History.
A career retrospective at Scott Eder Gallery in Jersey City. “The exhibition will feature art spanning over three decades from the Eisner-nominated Ruins, to complete comic stories… “Spy vs. Spy” original art, paintings, voluminous sketchbooks, hand-carved masks, a wide range of limited-edition prints, and much more. “
Compulsive Narratives: Stories That MUST Be Told. In January 2014, Rutgers-Camden’s Stedman Gallery becomes a haven for artists displaying comix versions of their life stories through a marriage of drawings to text.
“Peter Kuper has produced countless comic panels since he started making them at age 19. This week through October 5 (with a special opening on September 25), he is having an exhibition at the Society of Illustrators MOCCA Gallery of the work from his new book Drawn To New York, a paean to the city he loves. The show is just the tip of the iceberg. His latest project is a new full color 300 page graphic novel called “Ruins” that is fiction but based on his experience living in Oaxaca, Mexico. And he continues to create “Spy vs Spy” for Mad magazine, with a collection of 95 strips published in November. But back to Drawn To New York: This current event is a good opportunity to ask a few questions about comics, travel and life . .”
