How do you make a comic? That’s the question “Comics Stripped!”, a new exhibition at the University of Dundee, exploring the methods of creating comics, seeks to answer.
The exhibition is drawn from the University of Dundee’s unique collection of original comics art, focuses on the production of comics and how the process has changed over time. As well as some amazing artwork, the exhibition also features fascinating examples of scripts, printing plates, corrections, colour proofs and more.
The University of Dundee Museums hold Scotland’s only public collection of original comics art, a cornucopia of creativity from both Scottish and international creators.
“Comics Stripped!” has been guest-curated by comics creator, curator and lecturer Zu Dominiak, as part of Dundee Summer (Bash) Streets Festival, which aims to celebrate Dundee as the home of comics, running 14th – 24th July.
Zu will also be giving a guided tour of the Comics Stripped! exhibition over the summer – check this page on the University of Dundee web site for details, coming soon.
The Festival program includes pop-up outdoor comic museum, the Dennis fun-run, workshops, talks, film screenings, street performances, an exhibition of emerging work, marble runs and world record attempts.
