The Morgan Library & Museum is hosting an exhibit called “From Here to Here: Richard McGuire Makes a Book.” This art show was organized to celebrate the publication of the graphic novel, Here.
This full-color book, due out on December 9th, is based on McGuire’s original black-and-white comic. The closing date has been scheduled for November 9th.
Here’s more about the exhibit: “Though the viewpoint in Here remains fixed on one corner of a living room, time in the story is boundless and elastic. Populating the space with multiple frames of action, dating from the ancient past to the distant future, McGuire conjures narratives, dialogues, and streams of association that unite moments divided by years and centuries. The exhibition combines original drawings for the strip and the novel with source photographs, books that influenced the form and content of McGuire’s invention, and collages and sketchbooks that afford glimpses into his creative process.”
