Carousel Comic Art Curated by R. Sikoryak
About This Show
R.Sikoryak’s Carousel is Dixon Place’s longest continually running performance series, featuring a wide array of comic strip makers, graphic novelists, visual artists and luminaries from the downtown New York Theater and music worlds presenting work in front of a live audience. It seems only natural to show these artists’ work on Dixon Place’s Gallery walls. The exhibition will feature gag cartoons, graphic novel pages, painted storyboards and more on subjects including autobiography, classic literature, anatomy and other heady topics.
The opening on September 3 will be followed by the Carousel performance series in the theater at 7:30pm, with live appearances by artists showing work in The Gallery.
