Art Spiegelman, the creator of MAUS, will be visiting BAM for an exclusive exhibit, WORDLESS!
Celebrated cartoonist Art Spiegelman comes to BAM with WORDLESS!, an innovative hybrid of slides, talk, and musical performance created in collaboration with acclaimed jazz composer Phillip Johnston. Spiegelman leads audiences on a personal tour of the first graphic novels—silent picture stories made by early-20th-century masters like Frans Masereel, Lynd Ward, and Milt Gross—accompanied by an all-new score by Johnston, who performs with his sextet. In navigating “the battle between words and pictures,” Spiegelman smashes at the hyphen between high and low art, featuring a new work drawn specifically for this project called “Shaping Thought!”
The exhibition will take place on Sat, Jan 18, 2014 at 7:30pm.

LOCATION: Peter Jay Sharp Building
                       BAM Howard Gilman Opera House
RUN TIME: 90min
