I'm happy to announce IMPERA et DIVIDE, a group show I've curated with Pedro Moura at Second Street Gallery in Charlottesville Virginia, USA. The show will feature work and books from Frédéric Coché, Ae-Rim Lee, André Lemos, Ilan Manouach, Andrei Molotiu and Fåbio Zimbres. From the press release:
Six internationally renowned artists from Brazil, France, Germany, Greece, Portugal and South Korea will exhibit their selections of comics and sequential art in Second Street Gallery’s Dové Gallery. The show, curated by Pedro Moura and Warren Craghead III, reflects trends in sequential art to diverge from traditional comics and to employ “destabilizing and decentering strategies to offer rich, multivalent reading experiences.” Using ink, pencil, collage, etching, and digital media, these contemporary artists offer a fresh approach to comics.The show is based on the show Divide et Impera that Moura curated for the 2007 Amadora Comics Festival near Lisbon, Portugal. In addition to the show Moura has published a book "Divide et Impera" that will be available at the show's blog.
