DIANNE KORNBERG

 

Co-presented with Prographica Gallery. Visual artist Dianne Kornberg presents a slide talk about her extraordinary new illustrated book, Madonna Comix (Media F8). Madonna Comix, part of the artist’s multi-year collaboration with poet Cecelia Bland, incorporates images which include poetic text and speaks powerfully and provocatively about women's experiences as physical, sexual, maternal, sacrificial and spiritual beings. “Limbs, beaks, crotches, feathers all tumble over the page. With the backing scrim of comics the effect is bottomless. What runs through these pages—words and images, violence and humor, doubt and possession—the sum of them is love.” -Luc Sante, from the Foreword to Madonna Comix.  As is usual for our events, we will be selling copies of Madonna Comix and the evening's festivities include a booksigning.
