Comix Creatrix: 100 Women Making Comics Exhibition
Comic Creatrix is the UK’s largest ever exhibition of pioneering female comic artists.
Comix Creatrix presents the work of 100 innovative creators, debunking the myth that women have a limited stake in the world of comics.
From their early incarnations as sequential satires and newspaper strips to today’s countercultural zines, webcomics and award-winning graphic novels, comics have evolved into a complex and powerful literary form. Women have been present throughout this evolution, creating some of the most defining and provocative works of the medium.Highlighting 21st century work by British creators, the exhibition will also recognise ground-breaking works from the 19th and 20th centuries, and will highlight the influence of international practitioners on the British scene.
Expect original artwork from graphic novels, comics and zines – many seen in public for the first time. The exhibition will feature work from acclaimed titles such as Nina Bunjevac’s Fatherland and Isabel Greenberg’s Encyclopedia of Early Earth as well as self-published sensations like Nadine Redlich’s Ambient Comics and many more.
SEQUENTIAL, the graphic novel app for iPad, will be releasing a free digital guide to the exhibition featuring over 100 pages of content, as well as presenting a selection of full-length digital graphic novels on iPads in the exhibition itself.
