Conference to bring together influential cartoonists

An upcoming conference at the University of Chicago will bring together 17 world-renowned cartoonists for three days of discussion and public conversation about the past and future of graphic narrative. “Comics: Philosophy & Practice” will take place May 18-20 at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts.

This unprecedented gathering is the first in an annual series of conferences sponsored by the Richard and Mary L. Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry, a major new arts initiative aimed at fostering creative innovation at the intersection of academic inquiry and artistic practice. Artists attending the conference will include Art Spiegelman, Robert Crumb, Lynda Barry, New Yorker art director Françoise Mouly and numerous artists who have created cover illustrations for the New Yorker.
