“Architecture and Comics: Canadian Cartoonists and the City”

Mariana Muñoz Gomez (MA in Cultural Studies: Curatorial Practices, University of Winnipeg)

Dr. Candida Rifkind (Associate Professor, Department of English, University of Winnipeg)

Architecture has long been a prominent feature of comics, and the comics page even resembles the grid of a modern building, as each panel offers a window into the characters’ lives. Join us in looking at how contemporary Canadian cartoonists are drawing cities, streets, and buildings, exploring architecture as spaces we inhabit and as spaces that inhabit us.

The exhibit Architecture+Comics curated by these speakers will be up at Winnipeg Architecture Foundation (266 McDermot) until June 30th.
