On view at The Jewish Museum in New York from November 8 through March 23 is, "Art Spiegelman's Co-Mix: A Retrospective." The exhibition celebrates the career of one of the most influential living comics artists and shows the full range of five decades of relentless experimentation. Best known for Maus, his Pulitzer prize-winning graphic novel about his parents' survival of the Holocaust, Art Spiegelman has produced a diverse body of work that has blurred the boundaries between "high" and "low" art.
This first U.S. retrospective spans Spiegelman's career: from his early days in underground comix to the thirteen-year genesis of Maus, to more recent work including provocative covers for The New Yorker, and artistic collaborations in new and unexpected media. The exhibition highlights Spiegelman's painstaking creative process, and includes over three hundred preparatory sketches, preliminary and final drawings, as well as prints and other ephemeral and documentary material.
