Drawing It Out
Mitzi and Warren Eisenberg Gallery
September 22, 2017–January 14, 2018
Graphic memoirists use comics or sequential art to tell personal stories in highly focused ways. Drawing It Out highlights the work of six artists— Julia Alekseyeva, Alison Bechdel, Lucy Knisley, Jennifer McClory, MariNaomi, and Lauren Purje—who use this genre to convey their unique voices and experiences. The exhibition features a selection of original drawings and a video animation by MariNaomi. Visitors may look through all of the books that correspond to the drawings on display. A bookshelf in the gallery includes all of the books highlighted in the exhibition, as well as additional examples by other graphic memoirists.
