COMICS ART EXHIBITION: SEQUENTIAL SELF

COMICS ART EXHIBITION: SEQUENTIAL SELF

ABOUT:

“The Galleries at Eastfield College present Sequential Self: Female, Non-Binary, Trans, and Queer Voices in Comics and Zines, an exhibition focusing on underrepresented artists in the genre of comics and zines. Female, Non-Binary, Trans, and Queer voices, though not new to the comics genre, have existed at the margins while predominantly cis white male voices and characters were the focus of mainstream comics. Since the recent growth in diversity among comic artists and writers, there are now more voices and stories that reflect a variety of experiences and identities. This exhibition illuminates some of the powerful voices and innovative stories in the contemporary age of comics.”

The show, curated by Iris Bechtol and Lynné Bowman Cravens, includes work by Sophie Campbell, KD Diamond, Robin Elan and L.M. Zoller, Melanie Gillman, Sarah Glidden, Erika Moen, Erin Nations, Molly Roth, and Christine Suggs.

Panel Description:

Odd One Out: Memoirs of Un-belonging

All life stories are unique, but when your origin tale sometimes seems too strange for words, how do you tell it? Whether it’s being a quiz-show prodigy, searching for your cat and your soul, learning human connection from your shadow, or transitioning gender, Michael Kupperman (All the Answers), Maggie Thrash (Lost Soul Be At Peace), Liana Finck (Passing for Human), and Erin Nations (Gumballs) explore the challenges of being the odd one out.
