The Jewish Museum Opens an Art Spiegelman Retrospective

artThe Jewish Museum has opened a new exhibit called “Art Spiegelman’s Co-Mix: A Retrospective.” This New York City-based institution has created an art show profiles the career of the acclaimed graphic novelist (pictured, via).

According to Forward.com, the curators collected hundreds of drawings. Viewers will also get to see photographs, studies, and interview transcripts. The exhibit will run until March 23, 2014.

Here’s more about the exhibit: “Best known for Maus, his Pulitzer prize-winning graphic novel about his parents’ survival of the Holocaust, Art Spiegelman (b. 1948) has produced a diverse body of work over the course of five decades that has blurred the boundaries between ‘high’ and ‘low’ art. This first U.S. retrospective spans Spiegelman’s career: from his early days in underground ‘comix’ to the thirteen-year genesis of Maus, to more recent work including his provocative covers for The New Yorker, and artistic collaborations in new and unexpected media.” (via New York Magazine)
