This June, you will be able to visit Comic Art Europe‘s newest exhibition for the first time, as part of this year’s Lyon BD Festival.

Back in 2022, together with four organisations, including the UK’s Lakes International Comic Art Festival, CAE launched an open call on the theme “Living Together”. Artists were invited to reflect on their interpretation of “Living Together” in the modern world and illustrate it.

Five projects of five European artists were selected, and you’ll finally be able to admire their projects in a global exhibition this June.

Afterwards, the exhibition will go on a little tour around Europe. So if you can’t make it to France in June, you’ll definitely get another shot!

To launch the exhibition, there will be several dedicated events with the artists during Lyon BD Festival on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th of June. On Friday, there will be a panel talk with the five artists, followed by a guided tour of the exhibition and on Saturday, Eva Pavlič and Štěpánka Jislová will engage in a live drawing session.

In the exhibition, you can discover the work of James Albon (from England), Silvia L. Ballart (Spain), Bernard Hage (Lebanon/Germany), Štěpánka Jislová (Czech Republic), Eva Pavlič (Slovenia), all of whom went on residencies across Europe to develop their projects.

Comic Art Europe is supported by four organisations from across the continent – Lyon BD, the Lakes International Comic Art FestivalEscola Joso, Centre de Còmic i Arts Visuals and Centre Belge de la Bande-Dessinée (the Belgium Comic Strip Centre) – with the support of the European Union program “Creative Europe”.
