Here are a few suggestions for the month of May, 2022.
From March 3rd to April 16th, 2022, Philippe Labaune gallery will devote itself to three international artists who bear witness to their culture through their storytelling with drawings. Elizabeth Colomba, Catherine Meurisse and Rutu Modan combine the elegance of the line, the strength of the words, and the singularity of their personality to inscribe their works in the great library of the memory of humanity that the graphic novel occupies today.
Philippe Labaune Gallery will open its doors to Narrative Images, an exhibition of paintings and original comic strips by French American artist Miles Hyman. This will be the debut of Miles Hyman’s paintings in New York. Informed by mid-century American realism, European symbolism, and film noir, Hyman’s recent work is a study in light, imaginative juxtapositions, and a record of personal geography. Accompanying his paintings will be a selection of original comic strip drawings from graphic novel adaptations of Hyman’s grandmother Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery, James Ellroy’s The Black Dahlia, among others. Narrative Images will be on view from May 13 – June 26, 2021 with an opening reception on May 13th from 11 AM to 9 PM.
The exhibition, Line and Frame: A Survey of European Comic Art will bring together over 40 European artists from the last 70 years. This is the first time a rare strip and “crayonné” by Franco-Belgian master Hergé from his series, The Adventures of Tintin: Les Bijoux de la Castafiore will be on view in the US.
