For the last month, the French Comics Association has been hosting events around New York City as part of their inaugural “French Comics Framed,” which celebrates francophone comics and cartoonists. One of the final of events of the festival takes place tonight and it’s a doozy.
“Drawing the Unspeakable” is a panel that features a number of notable French comics luminaries including Kerascoët (Beauté), Pénélope Bagieu (Exquisite Corpse), and Catherine Meurisse (Charlie Hebdo). The panelists will discuss the complicated wordless art of expressing emotion through illustration.
The talk will take place tonight at 6PM in Columbia University’s Butler Library.
Tuesday, November 1, 6pm – Drawing the Unspeakable. Featuring Kerascoët, Pénélope Bagieu and Catherine Meurisse.
Columbia University, Butler Library (Room 523), 535 West 114th St, New York, NY 10027.
This discussion will focus on the challenges of expressing emotions through drawing.
