Lawndale Art Center presents "Between Love & Madness: Mexican Comic Art from the 1970s" opening reception
Wildly popular in Mexico, the art of micro-cuentos, or "mini-tales," are little known internationally. Beginning in the 1960s and continuing through the mid-seventies, these idiosyncratic Mexican comic books, measuring 3x4 1/2 inches, present genre stories that carry subtle political critique. Between Love & Madness is comprised of approximately 380 works, including original interior art, original painted cover art, and ephemera.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until March 25.
