invitation – Pulp Fiction at MOCCA
By chance, I got to spend a couple days at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art where the current show Pulp Fiction features the multi-media work of a group of artists who share a fascination with the characters and style of, for lack of better word, alternative comics. Most fashiony – this set of doll characters dressed in tremendously detailed outfits by Jennie O’Keefe.
What I have been doing is minding the satellite-shop of The Beguiling. Between chatting with gallery-goers I have been delighted to learn more about Canadian comic art… by flipping through Shrimpy and Paul among others.
Its also well worth the price of admission (pay what you can) to see the incredibly detailed drawings of Marc Bell, the self de-fence handbags by Liz Garlicki and various other types of art, all with the strangely hypnotic soundtrack to Asphalt Watches by Seth Scriver and Shayne Ehman in the background.
Pulp Fiction is on until August 23rd.
