French Comics Framed Festival
"This exhibition presents a selection of over 80 graphic novel illustrations from Franco-Belgian works. Staged under the beautiful arcades of the iconic Foundation Building of The Cooper Union, renowned for its programs in arts and architecture, it offers a journey through the formal and thematic evolutions of comics published in Paris and Brussels over the past 70 years. ... Most of these works have attracted U.S. publishers’ attention and have been translated into English. Entitled French Comics Framed and divided into three sections, the exhibition aims to expose the varied architectures that structure the design and narrative of the bande dessinée form."
