Artist and SVA alumnus Dash Shaw (BFA 2005 Illustration) will deliver the fall Distinguished Alumnus Lecture. With the publication of Bottomless Belly Button (Fantagraphics, 2008) and BodyWorld (Pantheon, 2010), Shaw has quickly established himself as a leading figure among emerging graphic novelists. The animator and director of IFC’s The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century A.D., Shaw is currently working on the animated feature The Ruined Cast. This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition “Ink Plots: The Tradition of the Graphic Novel at SVA” at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, October 8 – November 6.
Presented by the Alumni Society of School of Visual Arts.
