This Saturday at USC: Marjane Satrapi and Chris Ware

November 5th, 2014 § 0 comments


Award-winning graphic novelists MARJANE SATRAPI and CHRIS WARE are two artists whose difficult, beautiful storytelling combines visual pleasure with subject matter of the highest seriousness. Satrapi’s internationally best-selling graphic memoir Persepolis recounts her youth in Iran amid the Islamic Revolution and the Iran-Iraq War. Chris Ware uses stunningly lyrical drawings and spare text to create haunting, beautiful and unshakable books, including Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth. Join us for a rare opportunity to see these two critically acclaimed artists—and longtime mutual admirers—in conversation about their own and each other’s work. The discussion will be moderated by USC professors DANA JOHNSON and JEFF SOLOMON, hosting the event in conjunction with Professor ALICE GAMBRELL. RSVP now!
