RESIST! Presentation with Gabe Fowler
February 9 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm| 8/10
Gabe Fowler of Desert Island Comics will talk about his work on RESIST!, a woman-centric comics newspaper that comments on a Trump presidency. RESIST! is a special issue of Smoke Signal published by Desert Island. It is edited by Françoise Mouly, art editor of The New Yorker, and writer Nadja Spiegelman. A grassroots network of volunteers distributed free copies of the zine at Women’s Marches across the country on January 21, 2017.
Gabe will reveal the process of creating RESIST! He’ll discuss the factors that compelled him to highlight women’s voices after the 2016 presidential election, and the overwhelming response to the zine’s call for artists. A guest performer TBA will follow.
Space is VERY limited. Reserve your tickets thru Artfully!
This event is part of Beyond Patience & Fortitude, The City Reliquary’s event series in political advocacy and civic engagement, and in celebration of the diversity of NYC.
