Any Reading Order brings together several comics makers whose work transcends the popular conception of the medium as printed works, particularly superhero comics. To whit, comics are not a genre of literature, but a medium in which pictures and sometimes words, are placed on a surface and communicate by their accumulation of meaning in the beholder's mind.
Curated by Bruce Mutard, the works in this exhibition will fill the space, inviting beholders to move through them, along them and around them, constructing narratives of their own making. This is a far cry from turning pages in a book. Comics might even be better thought of as a visual art.
Elizabeth Marruffo, Bruce Mutard, Hien Pham, Alyce Sarich, Emilie Walsh, and Campbell Whyte.
This exhibition is part of the Perth Comics Art Festival (PCAF). The festival celebrates the craft of comics illustration and writing of graphic novels, genre fiction & everything in-between. Occurring Saturday 6 July at ECU Mount Lawley, browse the comics market or attend the creator talks, practical workshops, tech demonstrations and two gallery exhibitions.
Proudly sponsored by the City of Stirling.
