Free

About the Event

Opening: Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 2pm
Exhibit runs May 3-June 30, 2019

Architecture has long been a prominent feature of comics, and the comics page even resembles the grid of a modern building, as each panel offers a window into the characters' lives. Join us in looking at how contemporary Canadian cartoonists are drawing cities, streets, and buildings, exploring architecture as spaces we inhabit and as spaces that inhabit us.

Curated by Mariana Muñoz Gomez (MA in Cultural Studies, University of Winnipeg) and Dr. Candida Rifkind (Associate Professor, Department of English, University of Winnipeg)
