Chris Ware & Seth at U of Waterloo Tomorrow

Chris Ware and Seth will be in Waterloo tomorrow talking at the School of Architecture from 1:00-4:00 PM. According to the school's website, their conversation will be preceded by an "audiovisual presentation prepared by Ware and This American Life radio host Ira Glass entitled Lost Buildings concerning the demolition of Chicago architect Louis Sullivan's buildings and one person's efforts to save them." I imagine their conversation will be centered around architecture and judging from each of their comics, their thoughts behind this will be quite interesting.

If you are going to be in Southern Ontario, don't miss these exhibits:

Seth: Dominion (and its sister city of Beaver) at RENDER - University of Waterloo, on exhibit until December 6th.

Seth: The North Star Talking Picture House at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery where "one of the buildings from Seth's Dominion City project has been re-built as a walk-in theatre in KW|AG's Eastman Gallery. Within the theatre is a running program of short films selected from the National Film Board library by Seth. With its exterior painted to mimic Seth's graphic style, visitors are invited to literally walk in to one of Seth's buildings which, until this point, have only existed as small scale models."

Tom blogged both of the above in September.

And COMIC CRAZE at Cambridge Galleries Queen's Square that has art by Marc Bell, Chester Brown, Genevieve Castree, David Collier, Michel Rabagliati, Seth, Maurice Vellekoop and many other fine Canadian cartoonists (until January 4th).
