Opening reception for "Fevered Archives: 30 years of comics from the not-so-mixed-up files of Alison Bechdel" will be held on Thursday, April 5, 2012, at 4:30 pm at the Centers for Gender/Race Studies, 5733 South University, 1st Floor, 5733 South University Ave., Chicago, IL
Bechdel's work will be displayed throughout the CSGS building. The reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public.
The exhibit is part of the Artists' Salon project, which brings artists whose work meditates on sexuality and gender to the Center to mount temporary exhibitions. The inaugural year of the Artists' Salon features this exhibit of comics work by the world-famous cartoonist Bechdel, creator of the long-running serial strip Dykes to Watch Out For and the graphic memoirs Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic (2006) and Are You My Mother? (forthcoming from Houghton Mifflin in May 2012). Bechdel will be in residence at the University of Chicago for Spring quarter 2012 as a Mellon Fellow for Arts Practice and Scholarship at the Richard and Mary L. Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry.
Please come join us to meet the artist and see her work on our walls. Exhibit hours are Mon-Fri, 9 am — 5 pm through May 18, 2012.
Persons with disabilities who need an accommodation in order to participate in this event should contact the event sponsor for assistance. For events on the Student Events Calendar, please contact ORCSA at (773) 702-8787.
