Art Spiegelmanâ€™s Co-Mix: A Retrospective celebrates the career of one of the most influential living comics artists. Best known for Maus, his Pulitzer prize-winning graphic novel about his parents' survival of the Holocaust, Art Spiegelman (b. 1948) has produced a diverse body of work over the course of five decades that has blurred the boundaries between high and low culture. This first U.S. retrospective spans Spiegelmanâ€™s career: from his early days in underground comix to the thirteen-year genesis of Maus, to more recent work including his provocative covers for The New Yorker, and artistic collaborations in new and unexpected media. The exhibition highlights Spiegelmanâ€™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. This application includes audio that features interviews with the artist, as well as FranÃ§oise Mouly, Art Editor at The New Yorker magazine, Editorial Director of Toon Books, and Art Spiegelmanâ€™s wife and collaborator; Emily Casden, Curatorial Assistant at The Jewish Museum; graphic novelist and cartoonist Chris Ware; and Hillary Chute, Neubauer Family Assistant Professor of English at the University Chicago, and Associate Editor of Spiegelmanâ€™s book MetaMaus.
