The massive Art Spiegelman retrospective was the talk of the 2012 Angouleme festival, where it debuted last year. It has since traveled to the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Germany. And now C0-MIX: A Retrospective of Comics, Graphics, and Scraps makes its way to North America with its first stop at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The show officially opens on Saturday, with a discussion between Spiegelman and curator Bruce Grenville, and runs through June 9.
The show will then move onto its only U.S. stop later this year (November 8) at The Jewish Museum in New York. And don't forget that in the next few months Drawn & Quarterly will premiere CO-MIX, the first major retrospective in book form of Spiegelman's career to be published in English in North America. More news on that soon.
